Located in the heart of Lexington Center, il Casale Cucina Campana + Bar is a restaurant from Chef Dante de Magistris and his brothers Damian de Magistris and Filippo de Magistris. il Casale Cucina Campana + Bar continues the story of il Casale Cucina Italiana that began in Belmont five years ago, but is a tour around the Campania region of Italy where the de Magistris family hails from.<br /><br />il Casale Cucina Campana features an open kitchen clad with imported hand painted tiles from Vietri, classic Italian country furnishings made from reclaimed barn wood, and rustic metal ambient lighting pendants. A vintage map of the Campania region fills a floor to ceiling wall that is at the end of an 18 seat Carrara marble bar. il Casale Cucina Campana + Bar celebrates the ties to family and the roots from which they come, and Chef Dante and his brothers Filippo and Damian welcome each and every guest as an extension of the de Magistris family.

The legendary restaurant is for the food and wine aficionado. Blending contemporary American cuisine with one of the best wine selections anywhere, the Palace Arms consistently rates among the finest restaurants in Denver. Signature items such as a caesar salad prepared table side, seared steak of Colorado bison, combined with many other creative contemporary or traditional dishes. The "New" Palace Arms provides a casual dress code where jackets are not required.

"Great traditional restaurant. The tableside Caesar salad preparation is very old school and expertly executed.
Fabulous Tournedos Rossini. Also old school.
World class wine list. Prices range from reasonable to breathtaking. Sommelier is helpful.
Great cocktails.
Very expensive but worth it.
We'll be back."

Blue Stove is a stylish yet casual restaurant featuring our interpretation of contemporary flavors focusing on bold tastes and textures. The menu allows our customer the chance to experience our offerings through a variety of small plates that are bold in concept and internationally inspired. We invite our customers to select combinations of menu items with the goal of sharing each dish, making a dining experience unlike any other. The exhibition kitchen provides a stage for our chefs to prepare the menu in a colorful, energetic environment. The wine bar romances wine while providing an alternative dining experience. Our cuisine is inspired by local ingredients at the peak of seasonal freshness. The menu is complemented by a well chosen selection of interesting wines, many available by the glass to pair.

"This is a tapas-style restaurant in Nordstrom's, Burlington Mall.
Excellent imaginative food. Great wines by the glass. Enjoyed their fresh take on chopped salad, fried calamari, and cherry-glazed beef. Outstanding chocolate cake. Very rich coffee served in a French press. Best coffee of any restaurant in recent memory, in fact.
Very good service, but room is somewhat understaffed. Room has pleasant atmosphere especially given that it's right off the Nordstrom sales floor.
We come here often and will be back."

"We had been to the Columbus Circle branch of A Voce a number of times. This was our first visit to the original A Voce on Madison Square Park.
Everything was just great. Warm reception, professional and gracious service, well prepared cocktails, impressive wine list. The food was expertly prepared and beautifully presented. Of special note was the house-made fettuccine. Served with white truffles grated over the pasta at table side. Not just the pasta, but everything was memorable. We'll be back."

Teatro, located in the theater district overlooking the Boston Common, offers a modern approach to classic Italian dishes. The design of Teatro is both elegant and informal. The open kitchen and high arched mosaic ceiling gives the room a theatrical presence. Teatro offers a full bar and wine list. Full menu is available at the bar.
