Santorini Taverna’s chefs combine choice meats, fresh vegetables, and authentic ingredients to create an extensive dinner menu of Mediterranean eats. Dining duos and quartets can dig fluffy pita into a shared platter of assorted cold dips, featuring hummus, tzatziki, caviar taramosalata, eggplant melitzanosalata, beets, and grape leaves. Entrees of charcoal-grilled lamb chops or Greek-style chicken arrive to tables with a choice of fries, oven-roasted lemon potatoes, rice, or dry-cleaned-and-steamed greens. Servings of succulent crabmeat fill stuffed fillet of sole, and diners can usher bites to their stomach seats with sips of house wine.
The global cuisine at Crown Restaurant & Lounge satisfies myriad hankerings. You'll find chicken penne vodka, chorizo tacos, Mexican roasted corn, hummus, and Angus burgers. The diverse menu comes together as gracefully as the smooth cuts of wood that dominate the main dining space. Exposed brick, gold-colored seats, and tufted upholstery add a touch of refinement to the lounge, where you can sip on sake, caipirinhas, or lambic beer until 2:30 a.m.
With more than two decades of experience peddling authentic Korean cuisine, the culinary whizzes at Gam Mee Ok ladle out a cornucopia of tempting appetizers, traditional beef entrees, and exotic liquors squeezed from rice. An appetizer of freshly steamed dumplings or flaky seafood pancakes commences duos' chew-a-thons and are intended to be split between two people, much like the responsibility of rearing a perforated child, before guests receive two shareable entrees. Grilled beef short ribs come backed by special soy sauce in the wang galbi, and the japchae showcases sautéed beef tossed with glass or sweet-potato noodles and soaked in soy cream. Bibimbap, a mix of shredded beef and vegetables over rice, comes in a sizzling stone bowl (dolsot bibimbap) or au natural. As they dine, twosomes can sip on exotic spirits such as bottles of Korean rice wine, sake, vodka-like soju, or liquefied poltergeists.
