Chefs at Prime Catch Seafood Bar & Lounge grill, roast, and broil a smattering of surf 'n' turf selections, serving them up in a lively, cozy dining room with festive, cinnamon-red walls and warm, glowing string lights. Swordfish, ahi tuna, and lobster headline the bill of seafood options, which arrive drizzled with savory sauces such as sambuca-infused dijonnaise and lemon-chardonnay cream. Turf-based dishes include the classic chicken parmesan and the 10-ounce filet mignon. A full bar proffers European draft beers and several signature martinis, and an extensive wine list includes tasting notes that make it easy to pair beverages with menu items and to cram for the wine quiz that's delivered with every dessert. Daytime patrons can nosh on lighter lunch fare⎯such as a surf ‘n’ turf wrap or fish and chips⎯on the outside patio during the summer months, or drop in on a Friday night for live music and karaoke.

On Sunday at Cannon's Blackthorn, a fluid collective of flutists, drummers, and fiddlers gather around brick fireplaces and play traditional Irish music through the afternoon. They welcome all musicians into their circle, as well as the occasional Irish dancers, whose footfalls reverberate off the dining room's stone floors and wood walls. Though Sundays provide the liveliest display of Irish pride at Cannon's Blackthorn, the eatery celebrates Irish culture in more subtle ways throughout the week. Dining companions can settle into private enclaves to share a romantic dinner and whisper sweet nutritional facts into one another's ears before noshing on hearty meat stews and pot pies. Additionally, bartenders pour brews until 4 a.m. seven nights a week.

Chefs at George Martin's Strip Steak stand guard at roiling broilers, anticipating the exact moment when each dry-aged Angus steak within has perfectly browned. Ladles of béarnaise and au poivre sauces in hand, the kitchen staff sends each order—flanked by ramekins of sautéed vegetables or hand-cut french fries—out into the cozy, candlelit dining room. Wines and signature cocktails, such as ginger cosmopolitans, pair with each entree, including the restaurant's eponymous steaks, free-range chicken, brazilian lobster tails, and veal chops. George Martin's Strip Steak also caters special events, from small gatherings in its private dining rooms to onsite celebrations for up to 100 tuxedoed mannequins.

At Sangre De Uva, visitors can relish the flavors of Spain, Cuba, and Portugal in the form of tapas—small, sophisticated appetizers that are meant to be shared.

At Cielo Ristorante Italiano, candles cast orbs of light on white linens. Marble columns intersperse potted palms, and marigold walls sport paintings of the Italian countryside, where meatballs roam free. In addition to the decor, Cielo Ristorante Italiano pays homage to the Mediterranean with traditional Italian dishes and drinks. Chefs toss pastas with fresh tomatoes and italian meats and drizzle free-range chicken and veal with herb-infused white-wine sauces, and servers happily suggest pairings from the eatery’s ample Italian wine menu.
