The Fountain on Locust. Over the river, not too far from the Fox. Such a cool atmosphere and, ohmigosh, yummy yummy food and delicious ice cream creations and chocolates. In the wall booths you can listen to an old-style radio soap opera :-D
This area of midtown has really taken off in recent years, and The Fountain on Locust was certainly one of the catalysts for this resurgence.
