  • Opia Restaurant
    As the duo behind former hot spots Frederick's Downtown, Jour et Nuit, and Lemon, Frederick Lesort and Antoine Blech know a thing or two about creating internationally influenced restaurants. With Opia, the pair brings together the urbanity of Paris with New York City's nonchalance for a unique dining experience. A Look Inside Dark hardwood swathes the restaurant's 4,000-square-foot opulent interior, which features burgundy seating. These rich hues contrast with the balconies' glittering views of the city. Though the backdrop is sumptuous, the vibe is laid-back. Fodor's called the design "drop-dead gorgeous" before saying "Opia is ideal for couples in full-on infatuation or spouses hoping to remember the wine-and-roses days before the kids." French Cuisine with a Global Slant ? Classic French cuisine, such as beef bourguignon and chicken paillard, headlines the menu. The chefs add a global touch to other dishes, including the Couscous Royal, which features lamb chops and merguez, and the sashimi appetizer served with soy-yuzu dressing.
