About this Business
From Our Editors
The name of T/X Restaurant might prepare you for its cuisine's Texas-inspired accents such as charred poblanos, blue-corn salad, and chorizo breakfast tacos. But if anything, it's the flavors of the sea rather than the desert or the ranch that dominate the dinner menu, full of such creations as tortilla-crusted snapper, prawns in a sauce based on Patrón tequila, and seared scallops with cheddar grits. The adjoining bar shakes up margaritas, mojitos, and a host of other creative cocktails using fruit and liqueurs from around the globe.
T/X Restaurant occupies the Luxe Stoneleigh Hotel & Spa, which has held down Maple Avenue since 1923 and which, Frommer's reports, "has style to burn, with the welcoming feel of a large luxury boutique hotel" after $30 million in recent renovations. Guests can still see vestiges of the hotel's art-deco-era roots in the restaurant's dining room and bar area. Velvety red booths, marbled black columns, crystal chandeliers, and petrified flappers conjure all the decadence of the Roaring Twenties.
