Located along 10th Avenue, a short walk away from 58 Broadway and off-Broadway theaters, shines a beacon for scrumptious food and impeccable service delivered in a stunningly elegant space. Dotted with theater patrons, show people and their entourages and the trendy hipsters of the neighborhood, 44 ½ Hell’s Kitchen provides a lively yet intimate bar with boutique wines, many by the glass, as well as a seasonal specialty cocktail list and an extensive menu. Owner and Executive Chef Scott Hart offers an artistic and modern approach to contemporary American cuisine with seasonal ingredients sourced from many local farms. Whether you are seated in the Japanese inspired dining room or the calming bamboo garden, the energetic and attentive wait staff will make you feel like part of the family. Dinner served daily starting at 5:00pm and brunch on the weekends starting at 11:00am.

"This is as much an experience as it is a meal. You cook your own food, on a BBQ grill in the middle of your table. Great for groups of 6 or fewer. The food was really good. Very high quality meat and vegetables. The service could have been a little more attentive, but the staff was friendly enough. We were on vacation in NYC, and had friends, who live in NYC, with us. Great opportunity to visit in a fun atmosphere over good food."

We are offering our guests a rustic American menu of unique dishes created to inspire sharing, while conversing over a fresh, seasonal experience that is locally sourced.<br /><br />Our drink menu is equally balanced with a carefully selected wine list, artisanal cocktails and an extensive craft beer list that rotates seasonally.<br /><br />The decor is inspired by an early 19th century retreat, it is an ode to James Joyce, his peers and the cafe's / bars that helped fuel their collective works. Hundreds of books and antiques are displayed throughout both the bars and dining spaces. Private tables that have the feel of European style snugs are where the world's secrets are divulged nightly. Our split level dining spaces are lined with comfortable seating and a special communal table that is complemented by a working fireplace.<br /><br />A New Kind of Local.

"Our family of 4 (2 grown kids) had a great time at W&B. excellent food, great service. Our portions were more generous than I expected, so be careful not to over-order. The tuna avocado tacos appetizer were plenty for a meal. They do contain cilantro, not disclosed in the menu, so if you're sensitive to cilantro, beware. It's not overpowering, but it's there. Otherwise, everything was top notch."

At L'Enfant café-bar, you'll feel more like you are on holiday in Paris, than in Washington DC. This casual and pleasant cafe-bar, with a lovely interior and a beautiful sidewalk garden patio is one of the city’s happiest places to visit. Our menu features a large selection of delicious starters, a menu of Main Plates (like Beef Bourguignon, Roast Chicken and a sinful 3-Cheese, White Truffle Macaroni and Cheese), delicious savory crepes, the best and biggest French Dip sandwich in town, a cheesy French Onion Soup and our signature Croque Monsieur that will whisk you to the Left Bank with every mouth-watering bite. And no visit would be complete without a sampling of our menu of sweet crepes, where Nutella is king. Our candle-lit bar is cozy and friendly with a large selection of Belgium beers, fine French wines and champagnes, top shelf liquors and DC's most delicious cappuccinos, lattes and mochas.

"Everything about L'Enfant was great! The food was really excellent, as was the service. Would definitely be a regular here if I lived in Washington. I'll go back on my next visit."

"The food menu here is somewhat limited, although what I had (roast chicken) was excellent. But the selection of Scotch and other whiskies by far exceeds anything else I've ever seen, in Scotland or anywhere else. If you like Scotch, Bourbon, or any other kind of whisky, this is the place. Service was outstanding!"

"The food was OK, nothing great. I had a shrimp dish. The sauce was heavy, and obliterated the taste of the shrimp. A group was having a big birthday party, and even far away from them, the noise was so loud I couldn't hear myself think."

While enjoying one of San Francisco's most dramatic views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin Headlands, diners savor Chef Annie Somerville’s imaginative vegetarian cuisine that features local seasonal organic produce and the finest ingredients. Greens emphasizes wonderful dishes created with a balance of colors, flavor and a contrast of textures inspired by the cuisines of the Mediterranean, Asia, Mexico and the American Southwest.

"Forget everything you knew about Orlando restaurants. This has got to be one of the best restaurants in the area. I know that isn't saying much, but this place is head and shoulders above any of the other places, especially in the tourist area. It's a bit pricey, but not for the quality you get. This is a true fine dining experience."

Max Lager's was one of the first restaurants to bring the fresh and natural wood-fired menu concept to Atlanta. The art of cooking with wood enhances the Max Lager's experience with bold flavors simply not found with alternative cooking methods. We feel that the investment made in the wood-fired grill is an investment that pays great dividends to our guests.<br /><br />All Max Lager's menu items are prepared daily from scratch. Wood-fired steaks, burgers, seafood, ribs, and pizza are Max Lager's signature items. An inspired selection of entrée salads and pastas add variety to the American menu.
