The Mansion's chefs artfully craft fresh local fish, regional meats, and produce into a distinctly native, seasonal menu, served in four dining rooms within the Inn. On The Lawn, the epitome of classic New England al fresco dining, think small plates and summer cocktails delivered right to your Adirondack chair. From creative cocktails to appetizers to desserts, imaginative presentation and exceptional taste characterize Castle Hill Inn's fine Dining Experiences.

America's oldest tavern. National Historic Register structure. originally built in 1652 the property was converted to a tavern in 1673. Meticulously restored colonial rooms with wide plank floor and beamed ceilings offer candlelight dining by open fireplaces. Elegant yet casual dining of contemporary American cuisine. Voted most romantic restaurant in Rhode Island. Famous tavern room (bar) with fireplace. Unique. Romantic. Fun. <br /><br />

"Food was terrific -- better than I had even remembered -- service was gracious and professional -- not overbearing -- ambience was delightful: such a pretty, romantic atmosphere. An excellent place for a very special occasion. Expensive but worth it."

Tucked away atop Nob Hill, Venticello Ristorante, is one San Francisco’s best kept secrets. With quaint tables, a wood burning oven and views of the bay, Venticello provides a warm intimate atmosphere that is reminiscent of a Tuscan Farmhouse. <br />Recognized as one of the most romantic restaurants in San Francisco, we are located just a few blocks away from the historical Mark Hopkins and Fairmont Hotels, as well as walking distance from the Huntington Hotel, The Stanford Court, and the Ritz- Carlton Hotel. <br />As you walk into Venticello, you will enter our upstairs area. Our full and complete wooden bar is supplied with an array of distilled spirits as well as some of the finest Italian and Californian wines. This allows you and your guests to enjoy a variety of beverages while hearing the Cable Car bell ring just outside our front door. <br />Venticello, meaning soft breeze, will sweep you and your guests away with an unforgettable experience.

El Parador Café was founded in 1959; it is the oldest and most authentic Mexican restaurant in New York, celebrating its 50th year in business. Carlos Jacott launched the original establishment, first located on 2nd Avenue and 31st Street. The restaurant has been lauded for having the best Margaritas by The New York Press and the best Ceviche by The New York Times.<br /><br />The torch has now been passed onto Jose "Alex" Alejandro, a 1994 graduate of The French Culinary Institute, who continues to grow the restaurant’s following by offering an excellent menu, world class bar & lounge and warm atmosphere.<br /><br />El Parador is dedicated to culture and hospitality. Many of the customers, dubbed “El Paradorians,” first met each other at the restaurant.<br /><br />The wonderful ambiance and cuisine has made El Parador Cafe NYC's favorite Mexican Restaurant, voted #1 by Open table and, once again, named a Bib Gourmand winner by the Michelin Guide for great value.

"El Parador is certainly an oldie but food and service are not up to anywhere near the standards of Carlos' day. Disappointing. High energy level, which can be a positive, if that's what you're looking for. But noise level is deafening, to the point of actual discomfort -- you cannot hear each other speak. They need to invest in some sound-proofing. And the neighborhood is pretty strange for dining out. Will only return once every 20 years."
