Boutique Condominiums - September 19, 2006
5 out of 6 people found this review helpful. I just purchased a unit there. If buying something south facing, be sure to buy above the 8th floor. If you don't you will open your drapes every morning to a brick wall. However, if you are a recluse or a vampire, this may be just what you are looking for
I recommend this place.

Nectar Restaurant - September 19, 2006
4 out of 7 people found this review helpful. The real deal when it comes to fine dining. Tucked away on a quiet street you will enter into a modern atmosphere of warm glowing onyx. Nectar excels in what matters the most; the food. Truly excellent modern deconstructivist cuisine rounds out a perfect restaurant experience. Nectar chefs have been featured on several television shows such as Restaurant Makeover.
I recommend this place.

Remy's - September 19, 2006
0 out of 2 people found this review helpful. The two times I have been there I have experienced good, cheap food (at least for Yorkville), but slow service. It's a good place if you are not in a rush.

As a sidenote, the manager looks like Mick Jagger so talk to him if service becomes too slow.

I recommend this place.

Sassafraz - September 19, 2006
5 out of 7 people found this review helpful. A great restaurant but the paparazzi can ruin the experience. Sassafraz is a place to be seen more than anything else. The place is abuzz with hip socialites taking in the high class dining or just a martini. Dress code is anything cool and not last season. The parking spots in front are regularly adorned with a Ferrari or at least a 3 series BMW and beautiful hostesses will seat you promptly. The food is excellent and not as high priced as you might think.

Here is a good anecdote. The last time I was there, a wannabe D-list actress/model/musician who nobody recognized was flanked by 2 large body guards as she entered the restaurant. The entourage was a little unnecessary but made a good dinner conversation. It's not uncommon to see a real live A-list or possibly B-list star though. Sassafraz is sure to be an experience in one way or another.

I recommend this place.

VENI VIDI Vici - September 19, 2006
2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Definitely the best Italian restaurant I have been to in the city. Pasta was perfectly cooked and tasty. The ambiance was warm and inviting from the eclectic tin roof to the candle lit tables. Lots of excellent wine choices and impeccable service
I recommend this place.
