Sunday brunch is my favorite here. Either the Lobster BLT with a crisp glass of Sav, or the Salmon with Toast Points. So many wonderful choices and the service is excellent.

Great atmosphere, excellent piano entertainment from NYC and good food. It's a don't miss. The decore is very elegant without being stuffy. The bar area is always a happening scene.

Dining in a historic landmark hotel is always a treat. Great for couples particularly in the center room although the piano room is equally as charming for dinner. Try the side court for lunch. Expect great food and prompt professional service.
