We had a late night dinner here because another restaurant messed up our reservations. Nothing on the menu really appealed to us. Found it rather expensive for the portions. We ordered some appetizers but were not inpressed with anything. The service, however, was very good.

After dining at Spiaggia restaurant and loving it, we returned a few days later to try lunch at their cafe across the hall. Different chef, I think, but the food is just as great. The paper-thin papparadelle was amazing, as was the homemade gelato. We...More

One word of advice: Gnocchi. Melt-in-your-mouth little pillows of heaven in a decadent sauce topped with truffle shavings; to die for. While this was my favorite item, all the food and drinks were outstanding. Order a Makin' Memories cocktail and watch as the friendly bartender...More

Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent

place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.

The menu itself is relatively small as its focused on fresh daily options. There are a few fish options. The menu is always on the website.
