The surreal atmosphere of this awe-inspiring restaurant in the Meatpacking district of Manhattan<br />combines the serenity of Asia with the flamboyance of 16th century Paris. The menu features fanciful interpretations of Chinese dishes and delights even the most discriminating palates.<br /><br />

Street food is the great equalizer--no glamour required. Yakitori, when well-executed, is about the simple flavors of authentic street food. A hot grill provides intense flavors from seasonal proteins and vegetables, grilled to order over a chattering, hissing fire.<br /><br />Beer, wine and sake selections compliment the fresh-grilled flavors. Craft cocktails, wines and spirits are chosen for customized meal pairings. Experiment and discover!

Rich oak wood and verdant greenery set the stage for this classic restaurant perched above the corner of the Magnificent Mile and the Gold Coast, with beautiful panoramic view of lake Michigan and Lake Shore Drive. Here guests enjoy outstanding service for breakfast and lunch 365 days a year.

Nellcôte is an impertinent take on fine dining. Chef Jared Van Camp has crafted an “obsessively house made” and locally focused bill of fare - while taking influence from France, Italy and Spain, the ingredients and products are sourced exclusively from the Midwest. The vibe is Rock'n'roll bohemian chic. With a defiant return to glamour...Nellcôte is a sexy and high-energy nightspot with absolutely no pretense. <br />

Grace, the highly anticipated restaurant from acclaimed chef Curtis Duffy, opened late 2012 in the Randolph Street area, just west of downtown Chicago. The subtle elegance of the dining room provides a comfortably luxurious setting in which to enjoy Chef Duffy's Progressive American cuisine, offered in a tasting menu format. In addition to the dining room, a private dining space to accommodate up to 12 is available, as well as a lounge for a pre- or post-dinner drink.<br />Grace looks forward to welcoming you.

"Hooked is a pathetic effort at a sushi restaurant. My rolls were very light on fish, the fish was oddly flavorless, and they were smothered in sauce to hide the meager offerings. The service was inattentive and the decor rustic and uncomfortable. And, it tries to lure you in with specials that are then not available once you order."

Voted #1 in Colorado by Zagat Survey, Sweet Basil has been a must for travelers and locals alike since 1977. The cuisine is creative contemporary American utilizing many cultural influences from around the world. Located in the heart of Vail Village, the restaurant blends fine dining with a captivating "bistro-like" energy.

The Grill Room at The Four Seasons Restaurant is truly a New York phenomenon that <i>New York Magazine </i> calls "the city's greatest dining room." <br /><br />Wildly popular for generations, by day it serves a classic New York business lunch that attracts a who's who of moguls, politicians, socialites, models, philanthropists, architects and journalists. <br /><br />At night, when the lights go down, and Manhattan loosens its collar, the Grill Room is a spectacular Midtown meeting place for those who appreciate after work cocktail and a bird's eye view for spectacular people-watching.<br /><br />On Wednesdays, the Grill Room is home to live performance by Gianni Russo and a wide array of surprise guest stars. They have included Chris Noth of <i>Sex & the City</i> and <i>The Good Wife</i> who made his musical debut in the Four Seasons, Grammy-winning singer Gloria Gaynor, Dominic Chianese of <i>The Sopranos</i> and Boyd Tinsley, the violinist from <i>The Dave Matthews Band</i>.

"Is the service at the famed Four Seasons slipping? - I felt that the waiters threw their food at us and, surprisingly, cleared some diners plates before others were finished eating."

"usually love Chola but the place was so crowded for lunch that day that the line for food was long, the buffet was picked over, and the waiters were inattentive"
