Put wood down, put wood up; you're walking on wooden floors and wood is crawling up the walls at Bambara. This is a power-lunch, sharp suit, and aggressive tie spot that exudes manfulness. At night, sipping a house cocktail at the bar over a small plate of salmon cakes, the gents exude a well-moneyed swagger. If you're looking for class, you've found it. In spades.
