You know you’ve encountered a certain zone of high-quality dining when you’re halfway through dinner and a waiter you’ve never seen before appears at the side of your table, looks at your empty wineglass and asks, “May I get you another cabernet sauvignon, Ms. __?” Gentlemanly servers in white coats know their customers so well they can anticipate their every need, and you may never leave another dinner feeling so pampered. To start, the grilled portobello mushroom on a bed of spinach is light and tasty; it will leave room for the excellent veal medallion or sea bass. The wine list is extensive, and whether you’re having a power lunch or dinner date, everyone involved will leave impressed.
