Hill Country is proud to have opened in DC! Named "Best Barbecue in NY" by both New York Magazine and Time Out New York, "Top 10 Barbecue in the U.S." by the Wall Street Journal and "Best New Restaurants of the Year" by New York Magazine, Hill Country takes its "cue" from legendary Texas barbecue joint Kreuz Market and its distinctive dry-rub style. Hill Country's brisket, sausage, ribs and other meats are smoked low and slow over Texas post oak. The barbecue is served in butcher paper, counter-style by the pound, with traditional trimmings.

The Settlement is located on six acres overlooking Saguaro National Park East. Originally a trading post in the 1940's, The Settlement has grown to a full service restaurant and event venue. We have an open patio with gorgeous views of the park. We make everything from scratch and have a rare wood only smoker where we mesquite smoke our own house-made bacon, pulled pork, brisket, pork ribs, chicken, pastrami and wings. Our Black Angus steaks are cooked over an open mesquite fire. We facilities for private parties, weddings, and corporate events. We have daily specials including mesquite smoked Angus prime rib and house made beer battered Friday fish and chips.

"The Settlement was great as usual! I had been there several years ago, but it is still a great place to eat. The food was delicious, and the service was outstanding. Our server, Lindsay, was terrific. We really enjoyed it!!"

"We arrived, and they did not have our Open Table reservation!! I showed them my confirmation email, and they said they would find us a table. It was a tiny table at the bar.
The food and the server were great! In spite of the glitch with the reservation, I'd still recommend it."

Croton Reservoir Tavern has become a popular midtown lunch, dinner and after work gathering spot. Featuring a wondrous hand painted 150 sq foot mural of the reservoir in all its glory, dining at the Croton Reservoir Tavern allows you to enjoy a palpable turn of the century New York experience. The tavern’s 50 foot oak bar, brass studded leather chairs, wrought iron railings and leather banquet seating lay the backdrop for warmth and good cheer. Modern American cuisine and NYC’s most popular drinks are prepared to the highest of standards and served with relaxed charm and cheerful attentive service. Croton’s comfortable and casual atmosphere along with it's vibrant social scene, quality dining and special event hosting has made it one of New York’s most popular destinations.
