A member of the Francesca's Restaurant Group; Davanti Enoteca is a wine bar that offers shareable plates of rustic Italian cuisine. <br /><br />After opening the first location in 2010 in Chicago’s Little Italy neighborhood, Davanti Enoteca has expanded with restaurants in Del Mar, San Diego; Little Italy, San Diego; Western Springs, Illinois; and now the newest addition the Courtyard Marriot River North in Chicago. Davanti Enoteca, an Italian wine bar, offers shareable plates of rustic Italian cuisine from pastas, pizzas, and entrees in addition to small plate items such as vasi (mini mason jars with Tuscan toast), antipasti, salads and tableside presentations. Exposed brick and refurbished wood create the ambiance of a countryside cottage in Italy.

"If you have a group this is a really nice place with great food but the tapas style menu doesn't offer much to a single diner unless you want to pay $40 for dinner."

When Tony and Kathy Pietoso opened the original Cafe Napoli in 1989, it quickly became a success. So successful, in fact, that it moved to a larger location at 7754 Forsyth Blvd. In 2003, sons Ande and Kye expanded their family restaurant by adding Bar Napoli, a swank cocktail lounge. A few years later, Napoli Reserve was added onto Bar Napoli, allowing for private event space and an additional bar and lounge for the weekends. The restaurant continued to flourish, and in 2008 Napoli2 was born.<br /><br />Café Napoli and Bar Napoli have recently undergone a facelift inside and out. Kye has taken the reigns from his father and is now the front man for the 8,000 sq ft establishment. Inside the kitchen, head chef Chip Bates was added to the team, bringing fresh ideas and innovation to the regional Italian specialties. <br /><br />Café Napoli is a must visit when in the St. Louis area, a local hot-spot for athletes and celebrities. <br />

"Nathalie's is an excellent restaurant and if you're looking for something a little different from the standard St. Louis restaurant layout then you should definitely give this place a try. Much of the food is sourced from their own farm so it's fresh and very good. If you want to know more, ask the guy with the beard in the band- he's also one of the farm foreman so you can learn all about it. Great little bar too."

The Trident, formerly 'Horizons", is now open!! <br />We recently completed our remodel and upstairs Skydeck addition showcasing the most amazing views! <br /><br />In January 1981, this beautiful space was revived into Horizons restaurant. Inside is an incredible recipe of art and architecture, complemented with a resemblance of an old yacht. The ceiling mural was original to the Trident and painted by Dave Richards, creator of Janis Joplin’s infamous 1965 Porsche Cabriolet. On the outside deck, discover one of the most stunning restaurant waterfront views on the west coast, which boasts the skyline of San Francisco, Angel Island and Alcatraz. Join us for brunch, lunch or dinner <br /> <br />

Reminiscent of traditionally-styled Pacific Northwest seafood eateries. McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant offers a traditional dining experience in an unpretentious atmosphere. Our menus offer many varieties of fresh seafood flown in from U.S. & international waters along with aged beef, chicken and pasta. Bartenders create hand-shaken cocktails made with fresh-squeezed juices in our bar where we also offer an extensive list of premium wines & beer.
