Rasika, which is derived from Sanskrit meaning "flavors,” is the award-winning modern Indian restaurant owned by Ashok Bajaj. Leading the kitchen is Group Executive Chef Vikram Sunderam, a 2012 nominee for Best Chef Mid-Atlantic from the James Beard Foundation. Rasika has consistently earned four stars in the coveted Dining Guide of The Washington Post, and is in the top tier of Washingtonian magazine’s annual “100 Best.” Esquire magazine named it among the country’s best new restaurants in 2008 and Food & Wine magazine also stated that Rasika is “One of the hottest restaurants in the world.” Rasika showcases authentic Indian fare prepared on the Tawa (griddle), Sigri (open barbeque), as well as Tandoori and regional dishes. The restaurant is also noted for its international wine list, innovative cocktails and intimate, plush dining room. For private dining, Rasika has an exclusive space that can seat up to 16 guests and a semi-private area for up to 28.

"Had a great romantic dinner at Rasika West End. You need to make reservations in advance as they're often booked. Ordered all vegetarian entrees. Loved the edamame pancakes!"

Ocean Boulevard Bistro and Martini Bar is an upscale dining restaurant on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We pride ourselves in using fresh local and regional ingredients, in season, to create interesting and flavorful meals. We have a comprehensive wine list and have been awarded "Best of the Beach - 2014" for our Martini Bar. We also have an oceanside patio, across the street from the beach, for drinks and waiting.

"We dined here over Labor day and had a great experience. I wish the vegetarian menu was posted online, but we had to ask for it. Both of us dined off that menu and had wonderful meals. I wish there were more options, only 4 entrees listed."

"I read the reviews and was looking forward to dining here. The appetizers arrived in two minutes, which to me says they were not fresh. We had to send one back it was so unappetizing.
The two main dishes were decent. I just wasn't overly impressed with Masala Bites.
