10. Osteria Giulia

Osteria Giulia sprung to life in our imaginations as a tribute to Italian traditions of the past. We wanted to create one simple, beautiful thing. Somewhere outside of your busy life, outside of your surroundings, outside of time. An environment, an experience, an entire evening. Osteria Giulia is intimate, warm and familiar. We’ve reveled in her every detail. We’ve established a rarified menu focusing on Northern Italian cuisine and delicate coastal, Mediterranean flavor. Giulia is a new imagining of what an Italian restaurant can be. It always was the place of our dreams, the reason for our collaboration, and the culmination of—and conduit for—our collective passion. We can’t wait to welcome you. Chef Rob Rossi + David Minicucci

All in a luxe atmosphere that is both stunning and intimate at the same time. Shoushin’s sushi bar is fashioned from hinoki wood, a Japanese cypress revered for its fragrance and rarity. Because we believe that perfect sushi is best enjoyed in as perfect a setting as possible.
