    Steak and Sushi

    Steak & Sushi is a playful, modern take on the classic steakhouse. AAA steaks share the menu with amazing sushi.  A wall of wine is carefully chosen by an award-winning sommelier while top mixologists create unique craft cocktails daily.

    The room can accomodate groups of 100 for dinner and 150 for receptions.

    Di Vino Wine Studio

    At DiVino Wine Studio, an extensive wine list, open kitchen and authentic Italian cuisine come together for an unforgettable dining experience.

    With two private dining options, including the private tasting room and main dining room, the sky is the limit when it comes to planning your event at DiVino Wine Studio!

    Personalized menus, private cooking classes, wine and food pairing dinners are just a few suggestions, whether organizing a corporate function, birthday party, or wedding reception.


    Fairouz is a modern journey through the Middle East with dishes inspired by CAA 4-Diamond award Chef Walid El-Tawel.

    Located in a renovated Heritage house in Somerset Village, Fairouz possesses a sleek, modern design while paying homage to its traditional foundations.

    The Chef has paired his traditional cooking with local farmers and purveyors while applying contemporary cooking techniques.

    With a sophisticated wine list and innovative cocktails, Fairouz offers guests a unique dining experience with up-scale service.

    Note that this is one of the top 10 new restaurants in 2016.
