Upbeat and exciting. The place to gather. To see or be seen. There's a new trend in town - and it's where you want to be. As soon as you walk through the door, you'll know what we mean. The hip, energized lounge -- the center of the hubbub -- inspires a dazzling line-up of signature Flight Clubs, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Gather, Dine & Celebrate for an altogether contemporary and classically upscale American experience. The décor is sleek and casually upscale, vibrant and inviting with dark copper and gold metallics, plush seating, sculptural fixtures and subtle Kinetic lighting throughout. And whether you're dining indoors at an intimate table in full view of the Open Kitchen, or outdoors with a summer breeze, you'll savor our genuine, attentive service and flavorful, inventive cuisine and delectable desserts. Rotating menus use only the freshest locally grown produce - and with an extensive wine list to match.
