A smart and stylish restaurant and bar. Coup D'etat is ideal for groups large and small, it offers a private dining room and throughout the restaurant there are lounge areas, tables, and booths for smaller groups. The food is approachable, modern, and contemporary. The cocktail program is equally smart with reinterpretations of classic drinks as well as new creations.

"Went here for restaurant week, and enjoyed the menu. We were a bunch of high maintenance eaters (3 gluten free and 1 vegetarian!) and the waiter accommodated all of our needs. It is a huge space, hip and pretty loud. Not my usual type of place (I like smaller more intimate spots), but I can see how some people would really enjoy it. Good cocktails - loved the Dealers Choice where you allow the bartender to make something up for you. Corkage is $20."

Located in a historic, 120-year-old Victorian home in the heart of Breckenridge, the Hearthstone Restaurant, has been a locals' favorite since 1989 for wild game, fresh seafood, and hand-cut steaks all creatively prepared by our talented culinary team. <br /><br />Our extensive and reasonably priced wine list has received the Wine Spectator's "Award of Excellence" annually since 1997.

"Nice good restaurant. Not totally out there food wise, but very well prepared dishes. Atmosphere is very nice, romantic and cozy. We had the wagyu flank steak and the filet and both were great. We had the serrano ham asparagus salad and it was great. I felt like we got a second glance when we ordered a glass of the cheapest wine (which we knew, and is awesome), but other than that, service was friendly and attentive."

A new restaurant in Breckenridge built on the reputation and talent of Chef/Owner Scott Boshaw. "Never rest on your laurels," are words Scott lives by and this is evident in his globally-influenced menu and the contemporary styling of this historical Victorian home. We invite you for après-ski at the bar, a casual dinner with friends, or a romantic evening. Put a spark in your night. Let us warm your soul.

"Saw some really good reviews about this place, but I must admit we were disappointed. They really tried to be creative and inventive, but sometimes it just didn't work. The redneck salads sounded great, but it really needed more than the sorbet for a dressing - it was dry and not as flavorful as it could be. We were seated in the main dining room, which I think would be nice in the winter. It was just so-so in the summer. food was good, just not as great as we had read. Gluten free friendly (GF menu available), so that is a big plus if you need it."

Our focus is chef-driven Latin cuisine that always uses the best ingredients available. Our menu is designed to change to reflect the season, using the freshest, local, natural and sustainable ingredients available. We offer unique cocktails along with craft beer selections with a local emphasis as well as an extensive wine list.

"Restaurant has been awhile now, and I do see some changes - some good some bad. They have lots of fun events and happy hour specials. food is good, not great (but that is good in this neighborhood). Service varies, and last night ours was less than stellar. Food items seem to be a little different each time your order them. I had kitchen burger last night, and it was good - not great. My companion had cowboy burger and he enjoyed it, but thought the fries were not up to snuff. We will be back when we need to stick around Plymouth, but when we want real tasty food will get out of the 'burbs."

There are two Burger Jones...<br />There's the urban burger bar whose sleek dining room, cocktail bar and patio overlooking Lake Calhoun draws discerning burgerholics for lunch, dinner and drinks. This Burger Jones offers early and late Happy Hour, along with ample parking, including dedicated spaces for easy pickup of your takeout orders.<br /><br />Then there's the other Burger Jones...<br />Behind the kitchen door we transform a secret custom grind into burgers you'll have no choice but to attack – for their beauty can drive you insane – and no option but to eat quickly, lest the dopamine rush overload your pleasure receptors. <br /><br />Start slowly, maybe with a simple Burger Jones. As your habit develops, don’t worry: we’ll feed it.<br /><br />Sorry, no patio reservations accepted... Have a cold beer or Hillbilly Hooch and we will seat you outside as soon as we can if you prefer but expect to wait.

"My kids love this place, and it never disappoints. Good inventive burgers and malts, and I love the salad options. I had the greek salad with lamb burger, and my husband had the Cobb with the BBQ Burger. We have been coming here for many years, and it is nice to see many of the wait staff has stuck around."

Firefly, the quintessential urban neighborhood restaurant, offers contemporary American comfort food to the city's many 'regulars' who dine out several times a week. Enjoy favorites like our matzoh ball soup, mini pot roast and a variety of 'Urban Picnics' to share...or not. We also have many seafood and some vegetarian options. The menu is designed to utilize products from our local farms and farmers. Hand-picked to compliment the cuisine, our award-winning wine list shows an affinity for small winemakers and producers and our seasonal specialty cocktail menu offers a bevy of unique libations.

"We were visiting and decided to give this spot a try for brunch (dinner looks good too) Nice gluten free options and tasty coffee. The place was very busy. Shirmp and grits were tasty and my kids loved the waffles and ricotta pancakes. Portions are perfect; not too big and not too small. Service is spotty. I would give this a try on another visit for dinner due to their gluten free options and tasty looking small plates."

"I was really excited to check out this place while on vacation in D.C. We are from Minneapolis, and we have lots and lots of farm to table restaurants, and we dine there frequently. I love the concept of Founding Farmers, but it just didn't blow me awy. The service was very attentive (I think they wanted us out the door because there were plenty of folks who weren't wise enough to make a reservation on Open Table waiting for spots.) Lots of options, and the short ribs, burgers, and swordfish were good and generously sized Sides were also plentiful. All good, just not out of this world."

In 2007, we opened Casa Oaxaca in Washington, D.C., a traditional restaurant that brings the flavors and colors of Mexico to the capital city of U.S. Our main objective is to give Washingtonians a better exposure to the richness and diversity of Mexican cuisine. At Casa Oaxaca, mole sauces are our specialty and we have six types that you will be able to taste with chicken, beef, seafood or tortillas.

"We ate here one night while on vacation in D.C. The service was very friendly, the waiters were so sweet to help my kids practice their Spanish. The lamb tacos were awesome, and they make a mean Old Fashioned."
