Charley No­ble com­mands a great lo­ca­tion in one of the cap­i­tal’s most beau­ti­fully re­stored her­itage build­ings. It’s a great spot for a cor­po­rate lunch or din­ner with friends – so it’s not sur­pris­ing that it has gar­nered a reg­u­lar and ded­i­cated crowd of lo­cals as well as in­ter­na­tional guests from the city’s big­ger ho­tels and vis­it­ing cruise ships. They’re all drawn by what feels like a classy take on posh pub grub – burgers, sausages and steaks cooked on the wood-fired grill; oys­ters any way you want ’em and some ex­cel­lent sides (don’t miss the ice­berg wedge with pink pick­led onions and but­ter­milk ranch dress­ing). The drinks list is ful­some, with lo­cal drops well-rep­re­sented, and ser­vice is slick. Make sure you leave room for the “white for­est” dessert – a de­lec­ta­ble confection of kirsch mousse and cherry sor­bet.
