The Hunt & Fish Club is a classic, yet contemporary steakhouse located in the heart of midtown Manhattan. It is open for lunch and dinner and shares traditional steakhouse menu items, as well as seafood dishes. In addition to their upstairs White Room, where guests can choose to have an elegant yet modern dining experience in a beautifully designed atmosphere, there is also the smaller Green Room (24 seated, 30 cocktails), with an arched skylight and self-watering living green wall, as well as the larger Blue Room (70 seated, 85 cocktails), wrapped in vibrant drapery of contemporary Roman Reliefs under a grand, mirrored ceiling with a private bar. The Main Dining Room accommodates around 120 people seated and about 200 for a cocktail reception.

Tucked inside the first floor lobby of Le Méridien Philadelphia, aMuse has a sleek and sexy style (think a handsome bar, fireplace, chandeliers and black leather seating). Executive chef Jennifer Salhoff creates classic French dishes with a contemporary twist. It may be an intimate space but its cocktail list makes a big impression, especially when presented in smokescented glasses and luxe flasks. Signature cocktails look to a number of leading ladies, including Philadelphia’s own princess, Grace Kelly.
