In the time weve been doing House Mix, weve heard a surprising amount of AC/DC in the citys dining rooms. So where to go for something slightly more mellow heck, maybe even some oldies but goodies? Peasant and its sister restaurant, Bacaro, are pretty reliable bets. We recently visited the former and the night took us from Pattys Mixed-Up, Shook-Up Girl to, um, Madonnas Material Girl.
