We asked our concierge for a restaurant that was "out of the ordinary" and "different" and he immediately said Barton G. was the place for us. We got there at 6:45 and the place was nearly empty. We were asked if we wanted to sit inside or outside and we chose the latter because it was such a nice night. We were than promptly seated and were given iPads that had the menu on them. Our waitress came over to us and explained it a bit. She told us about the "nitro-tinis". Those were cocktails (or lemonades) that had liquid nitrogen in them so they would smoke and stay cold longer. We got the "diamonds are forever" one and a kids lemonade. After that, we ordered our meal. We got the swordfish, "gizmo chicken", "lobster pop-tarts", and the chopped salad. Each of them were amazing and served on very amusing plates. The swordfish was served on a plate with a giant plastic fish standing up about 2 feet tall. The chicken was served on a plate with a junk sculpture of a chicken (hence the gizmo part). The lobster pop-tarts were served in a giant plastic toaster. The swordfish was nicely spiced and very moist. The chicken was very juicy and had a really amazing au jus that had various spices and honey in it. The pop-tarts were a flaky puff pastry with gruyere cheese and plenty of lobster.
We had funnelcakes for dessert, a delicious carnival treat, I won't spoil the surprise for the kids on this one.
The ambiance is nice in the garden, there were many failies but also quiet corners for couples, leafy and cool.
The price is outrageous, so do it for a splurge, we thought it was worth it. I would disagree with the other reviewers, that although the restaurant is heavy on presentation, the food is indeed equally good.
