Cocktail Bar
$$
“Speakeasy Vibe - $$ - 10 min walk - Craft beers and Cocktails. Dutch Kills is only recognizable by a neon sign that simply states ‘BAR.’ As you step inside Dutch Kills, you are transported to a Prohibition era, speakeasy-style bar, with classic cocktails and spirits. You’ll find a dark atmosphere, vintage decor, small booths, and a sharing menu. If you’re struggling to choose a cocktail, just tell the server your desired spirit and they will concoct the perfect drink for you.”

“Sit at the bar if you can! This wine bar also has eats (pizza, salads, etc.), but I love going to sip away to the wee hours. In the summer they have outdoor seating -- coveted spots!”

Steakhouse
$$$
“American - $$$$ - 10 min walk - The food at M. Wells Steakhouse is what we imagine Rockefeller and Carnegie ate when they got together for working dinners. While chit-chatting about taking over the world and secretly plotting to destroy each other, they probably ate things like bone marrow escargots and the $4.50 porterhouse for two ($150 nowadays at M Wells). The space, which is a former auto-body repair shop, is a large dark room with a few metal garage doors and an open kitchen with a wood-burning grill. The food here is expensive and decadent, so expect salads to come buried in melted cheese, and wagyu and venison drenched in butter and jus.”
