WHY HERE: The Grill, from Major Food Group (Carbone, The Polynesian), is all about, well, grilling. Updated power-lunch steak, fish and chicken dishes work well in the same building that once housed the original Four Seasons restaurant. Cocktails at your table or in the vibrant gold-and-wood bar are watched over by the iconic Richard Lippold ceiling sculpture.
WHY NOW: The old-school cocktail menu gets an ingredient upgrade from NYC bar vet Thomas Waugh (Death & Co, Pegu Club). Pair your Amish ham steak with The Grill Sour (gin, lemon, honey and lavender), or ponder the prime rib trolly service as you sip a Tuxedo Martini (dry gin, fino sherry and orange bitters).
