The Living Room, like the hotel it is housed in, is part of an upscale Scandinavian chain. The look is pleasantly quirky and colorful. The chef is Swedish and the cuisine is modern American with a Scandinavian touch. The wine list is international, and there’s an international crowd as well as a local one. There is a menu for dogs and a “yappy” hour from 4:30 to 6 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, when pet owners can enjoy half-off drinks.
