The historic Victorian structure houses Old Spaghetti Factory and is filled with antiques from the period. Classy enough for business lunch, yet casual enough for family dinner. Long Island ice teas flow like water from the romantic bar with love seats and intimate seating for couples. Families can eat an entire pasta dinner with salad and bread without burning a hole in the pocket! All together, it's a formula for success even in the touristy climate of Second Avenue.
Downtown business deals, marriage proposals and special nights out require elegant dining. There are few places more elegant than Morton's. Guests are greeted by a friendly hostess and directed to the comfortable bar to wait for their table. The bar is amply stocked with imported and domestic beers, along with fine wine. Once seated in the dark, wood-paneled dining room you will discover the real charm of this restaurant-the food. Steaks and seafood are impressive and served alongside fresh vegetables. Bread and salads complete an elegant, albeit expensive meal.
You will find the best gyro (pronounced JEER-oh) in town at this Metro Center eatery called Kebab Gyros. But diners who don't care for ethnic food can also feast on cheeseburgers and fries, chicken sandwiches with a Greek flavor or fresh vegetable pita sandwiches. The gyros are the star here, however, served with rice pilaf and tabbouleh. With most restaurants moving closer to the tourist trade, it's nice to still have a place to go for a quick meal that really satisfies.
It's right in the middle of the tourist section of town, yet unlike the trendy theme restaurants down the street, the food and atmosphere are surprisingly original at Ichiban Japanese Restaurant. Sit down to a quiet meal, something that's hard to come by in this area, and take a break from your sightseeing. The sushi menu is extensive with over 20 selections including the signature Nashville Roll. Creative dishes like the sushi pizza with shrimp, avocado and crab served on top of a piece of seaweed. Teriyaki dishes and noodle soups round out the dining experience along with a full bar to whet your palate!
This delightful lunch destination is partly a restaurant and partly an entertainment zone. The fun and the food are provided by the husband and wife owners. While they take your order and prepare the food, they haze one another, joke with the customers and playfully argue about the day's events. The food, however, is no laughing matter. Enormous gyros, Greek salads full of feta cheese and homemade baklava will satisfy your hunger and delight your taste buds. Don't pass up the fresh squeezed lemonade. No alcohol is served here.
Demos' is a great place for a family meal or business lunch. Garden salads and pasta dishes are the most prominent items on the menu, but you will find a few steak selections as well. The house special is a basic, yet delicious, spaghetti and meatballs plate, and your meal always begins with hot buttered bread. Be warned: this is not the place for a leisurely lunch or romantic dinner. The pace is quick.
If you are extremely health conscious or a light eater, Prime Cut is not the restaurant for you. This place is all about beef, and lots of it. The largest steak in the house is a whopping 28 ounces, but it's not recommended for a beginner. Start with something more manageable, like the eight-ounce rib-eye or six-ounce filet mignon. Add baked potato and garden salad, and you have an outstanding meal. Texas toast, enormous slices of bread toasted with butter and spices, is served with every meal and is unlimited.
Soft piano music greets you at Sole Mio as you are invited to sit down to a meal of Northern Italian cuisine. The manicotti is a house specialty and the pasta dishes are served with your choice of creamy alfredo sauce or rich marinara. If you are in the mood for something different, try one of the creative thin crust pizzas topped with four cheeses and artichoke hearts, as well as any number of other delicious toppings. Wine, beer, mixed and soft drinks served, too.
This 18th-century house is the perfect setting for this fine restaurant. Antique tables and chairs are dressed with fine linen. The Mad Platter's menu changes daily, another boon, so each visit invites a new experience. You may find duck breast with grits and orange gastrique or bone-in pork chop with whipped vanilla sweet potato and sorghum reduction. Wickedly rich pates and assorted appetizers are not to be missed and a true Caesar salad is a perfect beginning. For dessert, do not fail to order the Chocolate Elvis, a chocolate confection worthy of its namesake.
Intimate private tables provide a perfect setting for romantic couples. The crowd at the Melting Pot is quite sophisticated, as is the dress code. A jacket is recommended but not necessary. To start your fondue experience, the chef will heat the Gruyere, Emmenthaler and white wine for green apples, bread and raw vegetables. You cook your own meat and seafood in oil or broth and then dip it in one of the many dipping sauces. Dessert involves a dozen or more chocolate sauces and bits of pound cake, strawberries and cheesecake.
