TRADITIONAL is inviting, warm and classic. This beloved look combines practicality and accessibility with a timeless look. If your style is traditional, you’ll love:
Stone Horse Cafe:
Lindsay’s choice because “the pizzas are consistent and delicious, brussell sprout salad + lobster bisque is a great winter warm-me-up, menu is changing with the season so you can always find something new to try. Decor is comfy with a stay-a-while feel. Bar is quaint and friendly!”
Jayne’s choice because, “the food is great and decor gives you the authentic feel of being in the heart of New Orleans.” She recommends the Nola greek Salad and Ju Ju Jambalaya.
TRANSITIONAL is a modern mix of both traditional and contemporary. It’s sophisticated, clean and equally masculine as it is feminine. If your style is transitional, you’ll love:
Debbie’s choice because, “The salmon is delicious. I have ordered numerous items on their menu and have never had a bad meal. They have amazing food and their service is top notch. The owners are very personable and make sure you feel taken care of during your meal.”
Redrock Canyon Grill:
Heather’s choice because “we like to sit at the bar and watch whatever game they have on and order a bunch of appetizers. Our go-to’s are the deviled eggs, dip duo, and canyon mushrooms. Perfect for sharing with your valentine!”
Lora’s choice because “I like having the option to get pizza or pasta. It’s quieter than most places so you can actually have a conversation.”
MODERN is minimal, fresh and simplistic. These spaces are typically open and unadorned, giving the room a feeling of airiness. If your style is modern you’ll love:
Lindsay’s choice because “there’s something for everyone. Must try is Chicken & The Wolf. Other notable options are Metropolis and Nice Guys Shrimp Shack”
Bird & Bottle:
Also Lindsay’s choice because “It’s a fresh, modern take on traditional items. I had the fried chicken sandwich (I’m a sucker for these!) which was elevated with their own touches. Good drink menu. I hear they are “famous” for their brick chicken which some of the ladies I was there with got and they did LOVE it.”
URBAN FARMHOUSE is fashionable, organic, and rustic. It celebrates the art of repurposing with reclaimed woods, metal and leather. If your style is Urban Farmhouse, you’ll love:
Julia’s choice because “the food is all sourced locally, even the ranch dressing is made in-house. Stan had the Theta burger, which came with a cheese skirt, you heard that right…. Cheese all the way around the burger!”
