1808 Grille

If you're headed to 1808 for dinner, brace your wallet. But if you're looking for a noontime retreat, the so-called Panini Parlor delivers surprising bang for your buck. The parlor isn't actually a separate room, but a nickname for the mix-and-match menu of grilled sandwiches. Choose a meat from column A, a cheese from column B, and so on, until you've got a custom concoction—along the lines of pulled duck with caramelized onions and chimichurri—for about 10 bucks. Once you succumb to the playful desserts—banana beignets, peanut butter mousse and très leches crème brûlée—you're beyond the bounds of "cheap eats," but dining in the casual elegance of the Hutton Hotel is worth a small premium.
