Concierge.com's insider take:
Nearly three years in the making, Spruce is a large designed-to-the-hilt joint that feels like it's straight out of a Williams-Sonoma Home catalog. Enter beneath an arched portico to an opulent soaring space where chocolate mohair walls, buttery leather seating, and dim lamps set the mood. The menu is stuffed with incredibly rich fare—foie gras with grape gelée, veal sweetbreads, sliced potatoes cooked in duck fat, and buttered Maine lobster. The clientele, though, is up to the challenge: The dining room is a showcase for affluent socialites in Chanel, while the marble-topped bar and lounge is packed with Laurel Heights fashion mavens gossiping over after-work cocktails.
Open Mondays through Thursdays 11:30 am to 2:30 pm and 5 to 10 pm, Fridays 11:30 am to 2:30 pm and 5 to 11 pm, Saturdays 5 to 11 pm, and Sundays 5 to 10 pm.
