The kitchen and wait staffs at Lemongrass Kitchen understand the importance of first impressions. With that in mind, they have surrounded the booths and plush chairs in the dining room with plum-colored drapes, vases full of lilies, and Asian-inspired artwork and pottery. To take it to the next level, each of their contemporary takes on Asian culinary traditions is plated with panache, such as jumbo shrimp suspended above a bed of fried rice noodles or Malaysian fried rice served inside half a pineapple.
Restaurant critics, neighborhood regulars, and first time visitors always agree about My Daughter's Place at Brookview Manor: the atmosphere is great, the food is superb, and the service is outstanding. The restaurant offers a casual atmosphere that is perfect for dining with friends, co-workers, and family members.
The comestible concoctors at red Steakhouse anchor down ivory tablecloths with a robust menu (menu subject to change) of high-quality cuts of meat and a mammoth wine list that dazzles tasters with elegant libations. Lap up splashes of the corn-and-lobster chowder ($9) before diving forkfirst into an entree of halibut, which shares its plate estate with chorizo, calamari, broccoli raab, and a Yukon potato puree ($31). After cashing in at the casino, guests can dine like oil barons, nursing a glass of Blackstone merlot ($8) while curbing carnivorous cravings with the grilled filet mignon ($36 for the petite cut; $45 for the steakhouse cut) or chef Stephan’s steak Diane, topped with wild mushrooms, tomato concassée, and dijon cognac cream ($38). The warm glow of pendulant chandeliers against chocolate-colored seating creates a dining environment both modest and luxurious—like a diamond donning a one-piece swimsuit. Reservations can be made online.
Black lights spill across an indoor arena, casting a fluorescent glow over a squadron of laser-tag players as they wait silently for the start of a new round. Suddenly, fast-paced music blares and the air is filled with more flashes of red than a confused stoplight. Friendly battles like these are everyday occurrences at Fun Station. The sprawling family-centric center houses everything from air hockey, to skee-ball, to a miniature bowling alley. Laughter emerges from within colliding bumper cars, while pizza and hotdogs anchor the snack shop's menu. The family attractions also extend outside, where visitors are often found settling land disputes at a miniature-golf course or speed across a tire-lined go-kart track.
