Operated by the award-winning Big Night Entertainment Group, Empire is a 14,000-square-foot boutique Asian restaurant and lounge located in the Seaport area of Boston, just steps from the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Empire offers a tantalizing menu from executive Chef Kevin Long (Tosca, Shrine, Red Lantern, GEM, Scorpion Bar), stylized interior and ethereal atmosphere that will transport guests to another world. With a capacity of 600 guests and three 40-seat private dining rooms that open up to one large private event space, Empire can accommodate groups of all sizes for receptions and seated dinners.

"We were in the area and wondered about a wise choice for dinner. Open Table presented several restaurants in the vicinity, but as a vegan this looked great.
It's simply amazing! There's an open kitchen which bustles with apparent organization and energy. The dishes are so uniquely beautiful that it forces us to chat with people next us; "wow. What is that? I'll have one of those!"
We were a bit over zealous and took a bag of leftovers home; they were still decadent morels the following day!
We highly recommend that you get in on this!

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.

"As a vegan, I wish there were a few choices. The chef however, made a special pizza for me with vegan red sauce and some topping which I selected.
Salads are fresh out of a garden! Tasty white bean dip is served with warm bread.
You won't be rushed. Nice atmosphere for any kind of meet.

With its modern but classic Italian cuisine and emphasis on artisanal and contemporary Northern Italian style, Mediterraneo is often credited with being the first restaurant to bring authentic contemporary Italian cuisine to Sarasota when it first opened in 1996. Still under the same ownership, Mediterraneo has consistently been rated one of the top restaurants in Zagat. The restaurant has received numerous accolades including the acclaimed Insegna Del Ristorante Italiano awarded by The Minister of Agriculture & Commerce in Rome. With its highest honor, inducting the restaurant into its Accademia Italiana della Cucina "Fine Dining Hall of Fame." Mediterraneo has been rated as Best of the Best in Sarasota Magazine since the first year of opening. <br><br>So whether you're celebrating a special occasion or grabbing a quick bite to eat, at Mediterraneo you are always assured the best quality food accompanied by excellent service. All of it thoroughly Italian.

"We were taken care of very kindly by our waiter. The food was clearly fresh, high quality, and creatively prepared. There were six in our party, and we ordered six different entrees. Each one was unique and special."

A funky local vibe with great comfort food from original and eclectic burgers to fantastic healthy salads, creative sandwiches, mouthwatering sides, and starters. We are looking to incorporate as many local and sustainable items on our menu as possible and running weekly and monthly specials to keep your curiosity attentive. We will carry an impressive list of craft beers, wines, and cocktails, again, trying to carry and utilize as much local product as possible. Our menu will give our advice and motive on beverage pairings with every menu item. Our bartenders will be mixologists with a high energy charismatic attitude. Our servers will be every diner’s best friend, full of knowledge to help guide customers to the perfect choice for maximum enjoyment. The Filling Station will be about a fun atmosphere, amazing service, and rockstar mind-blowing product.

"The dining room is filled with relics of circa 1940 antiques, but it's it's not dusty or overcrowded. Its all interesting and makes for a cool environment. Including the VW Bus!

Food is really fresh and good.
Service is right on!!!
