Eric Mattimore (Gigi's After Dark)

Readers' Choice

Mattimore, the former bar manager at the sorely missed Katz Club Diner Bar Car (which was destroyed by arson last year), is now overseeing healthy pours of cab and pinot at Gigi's After Dark on Fairmount. The New York-style lounge has become a favorite for eastsiders, and Mattimore's friendly face and prompt, personable service is a huge reason why.
