Zafra is a great place for a date or celebration of any type. Amazing food and cocktails combined with the feel of Old Havana make Zafra a great choice for a night out. With the largest Rum selection in New England you are sure to find some delicious Rums that are new to you.

Briq caters to the diverse and individual tastes of every guest providing an ideal mix of global tapas, "table-style" dining and a lively bar scene. Whether it’s dinner before a show, summer fun on the rooftop or cocktails in the lounge, there’s something for everyone. Our “one-of-a-kind”… historical townhouse, located in the center of downtown on College Street offers a unique and comfortable space. A perfect place to see and be seen, or lay low in a quiet niche.

"Usually the food is very good but this time many of the menu items were out, even out of coffee and tea!"

Reminiscent of a Paris brasserie it is where old world charm meets the new. Warm and welcoming to New Haven's cafe society, it is located across from Yale University old campus. The restaurant offers menu and ambiance in a casual elegant style. Always using the best ingredients of the moment, Union League Café's food combines French classical traditions with a more contemporary approach to flavors, textures and native ingredients. Local and organic fish, meats, cheeses, produce and rare specialty products from around the world help our chefs create our award-winning cuisine.

Voted “Top Five Izakayas In North America” by Bon Appétit Magazine in 2011; topping “Industry and Readers Choice” 2012 awards for Best Japanese and Best Izakaya in the Georgia Straight weekly: and “Best Casual Chain, Silver” by Vancouver Magazine in 2012, Hapa Izakaya offers a winning combination of a sexy room, well-priced portions of Japanese tapas, sushi, cocktails and premium sake. When Lea and Justin Ault introduced Hapa in 2003 they exploded the izakaya concept in Vancouver, setting the bar high for the host of contenders that followed. In 2010 Hapa was the first izakaya to join the Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise™ seafood conservation program and one of only a handful of Japanese restaurant partners in the program to date. Hapa continues to be a standout for its unique blend of food, fun and culture.

Drive through an evergreen oasis and dine beneath towering trees on the oceanfront, at The Teahouse on Stanley Park’s Ferguson Point. <br /><br />One of Stanley Park’s historic seaside landmarks, this popular meeting spot is minutes from downtown Vancouver and boasts an outdoor fireplace on the restaurant’s patio, which looks out to sunset views of Georgia Strait from the western tip of Stanley Park. <br /><br />The natural west coast atmosphere is perfectly enhanced by Executive Chef Annabelle Leslie's cuisine using fresh local ingredients. <br /><br />For private events, the Teahouse has three distinct rooms; perfect for seminars, meetings or special occasions of any kind. Each room offers ocean views that are unmatched in Vancouver. <br /><br />The Teahouse is a contemporary dining experience with a difference, accompanied by the longest sunsets in the city.

Our 3rd restaurant, and our 2nd steakhouse, has become one of New Haven's most popular restaurants. Conveniently located at 660 State Street at Audubon, off the State Street exit from I-91. We offer the state's best Prime Rib, thick Angus steaks and chops, fresh seafood, live Maine lobsters up to five pounds, and an award winning wine list. Occupying the first floor of the prestigious One Audubon Building, the handsome bar looks out at this newly renovated business neighborhood through a floor-to-ceiling concave window. Carmen Anthony Steakhouse of New Haven offers outstanding coffee and espresso service, our luscious homemade desserts, and a full selection of Grappa, Scotch, Bourbon and Cognac. Year after year, all Carmen Anthony wine lists are awarded the prestigious "Award of Excellence" by Wine Spectator Magazine.

Tartinery is the modern version of the traditional french bistro. Its concept, inevitably, revolves around the Tartine, which can be described as a classic and gourmet open-faced sandwich served on a razor-thin slice of toasted bread. Our feature bread is the well-renowed Poilane country bread from St Germain-des-Pres in Paris. Among our 17 recipes you will find a tartine you will love at any hour of the day to share or not to share. In addition, we also offer typical salads, seasonal soups (hot & chilled), homemade desserts, freshly squeezed juices and a unique selection of boutique and organic wines by the glass, carafe and bottle. We are a wine bar and “tapas” bar French style by evenings. The entire menu is chalk-written on the wall above the concrete bar. Chalk walls are also found in the restrooms, where customers can leave their own personal messages of appreciation. The industrial decor is a tactful blend of New York classics and european soul.
