Villa d’ Este
For more than 30 years, Villa d’ Este chef and founder Ramon Oropeza has serenaded sensory receptors with the alluring aromas and bold tastes of finely crafted Northern Italian cuisine served alongside American steakhouse staples. The restaurant's culinary team exercises its knack for pleasing palates while gussying up 10 pasta dishes with bolognese and roman sauces, sautéing veal five different ways, and nestling housemade muffins alongside opulent Sunday brunches. An extensive wine list wets whistles with a variety of adult grape juices available by the glass or bottle, granting diners the liquid courage to ask a potted plant for a dance. Villa d' Este's banquet room harkens back to 1930s splendor with opulent crystal chandeliers and live pianists inviting diners to chew in syncopation.
