Keep your eyes open for the rich and famous; this downtown locale is popular with visiting celebrities. Elegant decor and superb service equate into a wow-this-is-great dining experience. Steak dominates the menu and the portions are so large that it has been rumored that some diners have asked for a power saw instead of a steak knife. The bar offers an outstanding selection of wines and martinis. Opens on Sundays at 5pm.
There is no mistaking this pearl of a restaurant as being a chain. Located in a residential house, you almost wonder if you must knock before entering. The interior is tiny and is divided into three separate rooms. The small bar with one small TV looks like the kind of thing you would find in a fraternity house's basement. Yet, it drips with refreshing character. The menu, as expected, features barbecue ribs as well as other tasty dishes such as catfish and red beans and rice.
For a truly classic dining experience, check out this restaurant housed in a restored Victorian mansion. Diners can choose to be seated in one of several rooms or on the patio during the summer months, where a string quartet provides live entertainment. The menu is ambitious and offers such dishes as Colorado Trout, Braised Rabbit, and Roasted Cornish Game Hen. Vegetarians can find a few choice items to conform with their tastes too.
