Where to Eat

Artisan Bistro - The 76-seat modern dining room is dressed with rich dark and light woods and features elegant European design elements. Spot coloring in the new space echoes a classic bistro look and feel. Crafted wood wainscoting envelops the room and dramatic ambient lighting from above bathes white-washed, wood floors to reflect a bistro-like setting. Additional cluster seating is intimate and close, allowing for easy conversation and lively exchange. A communal table also serves to unite friends and those who will likely be friends by evening’s end. Warm, soft colors soothe the room from lunch to dinner, and after hours. The 22-seat bar, with a zinc top, is an integral part of the restaurant’s fun. The mood at the bar is lively, and inviting, yet relaxed and casual at the same time.

Avery Bar - The space is a modern, sophisticated design for hotel guests and local residents longing for a more stylish and relaxed feel. Items on the cocktail destination’s small plates menu are perfect for splitting among friends The space offers 65 seats with residential retro-style lounge seating, including two intimate alcoves that can be cordoned for private parties, and 13 seats at an arch-shaped bar decked with hand-selected Italian Calcutta marble.
