Maggiano's Little Italy (Downtown)

Reminiscent of a New York-style supper club serving southern Italian cuisine in grand proportions. Also have a large group? Book one of the banquet areas for your gathering.

Sushi Den

Sushi Den offers fresh, vibrant seafood flown in daily from Japan and a hip, lively scene. To the tune of urban beats, diners slurp lobster ramen and watch as platters piled high with tuna, mackerel, and salmon are whisked to lucky tables. Sit at the bar and watch the masterful sushi chefs, led by Toshi Kizaki, as they banter in Japanese and work their artistry.
