Gastropub
$$
“This Michelin-starred gastro pub is one of the best in the city, and is known for many amazing dishes. Burger-wise, the Chargrilled Burger with Roquefort is epically good - the ultra-thick beef patty is topped with the stinkiest, most delicious Roquefort cheese and comes with a mountain of shoestring fries. ”

Asian Restaurant
$$$
“Tao Downtown’s restaurant is a hidden gem and “in the know” oasis called Tao Downtown Nightclub.  Separate from the restaurant, the 2500 sq foot drinks-only lounge has kept a low-key profile attracting VIPS and celebrities for late night/wee-hour cocktails, music and dancing. Just be away they the night club and the restaurant are the same area but does not mean you can switch from one place to the other. ”
