Though a lack of windows, ultra-dim lighting and puffs of smoke coming from the bar might suggest otherwise, Dots' quirkily (velvet Elvises, Jesus candles, etc.) adorned dining room is family-friendly�really!�until 10 o'clock, when a "no minors allowed" policy kicks in. The menu at this inner Southeast hotspot works for kids, too, as Dots is known for its heaping plates of crispy, cheesy fries (yummy, $4.50 and up). Don't worry, grown-ups�the cocktail menu, an oozy Reuben sandwich ($7.50), and a jukebox in favor of indie rock supports an adult-sized palate. (KP)
