For jaded Bostonians, a restaurant with nightclub-chic good looks engenders a sinking feeling: “Here be mediocre food and drink.” Yvonne’s crushes this old wisdom by serving absolutely first-rate cocktails and a terrific, eclectic menu in a jaw-dropping space: the bygone Brahmin landmark Locke-Ober, its old-money mahogany fixtures intact, but the rooms otherwise transformed with opulent surfaces, cheeky wall art and the flattering light of fireplaces and crystal chandeliers. It adds up to the most consistently fun and glamorous new restaurant to hit the city in years.
