When you walk into The Darby, you’re greeted with a lively, swanky, opulent and sophisticated scene. I could totally see Don Draper (from Mad Men) sipping on a cocktail, feasting on oysters while leaning back in one of the posh red banquettes.
The live music is reason enough to go. The band was terrific. All throughout dinner we grooved to classic soul hits like Outstanding, Respect and All I Do. They even threw in a reggae set.
The retro-inspired supper club/speakeasy is about an all encompassing experience- live music, american fare and old-school glamour.
The new American menu focuses on the classics- Shrimp Cocktail, Oysters Rockefeller, Steak Tartare, Lamb and an extensive raw bar. The food was pretty good. I wouldn’t go back just for the food but like I said, it’s about the entire experience. And I would definitely go back for that!
Morimoto provides a great dining experience! I love everything about it….
-The modern and sleek decor
-Creative and tasty food
-A vast selection of cooked food and sushi/sashimi
-The cool and upbeat atmosphere
I have so many Chow Faves but I’ll try to restrain, and list my absolute Faves!
Spicy King Crab- It’s like crack. You can’t get enough. The tobanjan ailoi is terrific.
This is definitely one of my faves. Dell’Anima is very simple and chic with a “wine bar” feel, and the food is top notch!
The flavors and textures of most dishes are savory and authentic.
This is definitely a spot where there’s no separation between church and state (dinner and nightlife). It’s great when you want a cool and upbeat environment- and you can always go downstairs to SL (club/lounge) to take things up a notch. Be prepared for a Euro and B&T crowd on certain nights at SL.
Abe & Arthur’s serves typical American fare reminiscent of a steak house menu with a few surprises.
I usually go with a group (which they are totally equipped for) and we share everything.
Tuna Tartare Tacos: Fresh, crisp and tasty
Tipsy Parsons serves Southern comfort food (but no fried chicken) in a casual and cozy setting. It feels like you’re eating at a friend’s house. I definitely want to check it out for brunch.
