Our group of 8 was weary after walking the monuments on a chilly evening. An Internet search provided 701 and we made reservations along the way. Upon entering 701, we were greeted by a friendly coat check girl and then seated in a beautiful restaurant. The piano and bass player were well in sync with each other playing some old pop standards. Although I would have preferred some more traditional Jazz, the two were obviously skilled in their art.
The waitress was full of wit and extremely helpful as we worked our way through the menu. All of her suggestions were spot on and her wine knowledge was impressive. She suggested a Fall Spiced Martini with a rye base and I was not disappointed. The flavor was full and tasty.
All of the appetizers were delicious including the deviled eggs, calamari and a variety of salads. My main course was a steak and boneless rib combo and both were cooked to perfection. The steak piece had a little bit of membrane so I needed to use my knife but if that hadn't been there, the steak would have cut easily with only my fork.
We were too full to enjoy the dessert menu but I look forward to going back some day and experiencing more!
