Zola has a super swanky, ultra modern atmosphere and decor that really impresses. It's lunch and dinner menu is pretty large, and offers primarily American cuisine like quail, chicken, and lamb.

What I really like about this place, other than the cool decor, is it's pre-event menu. Zola is located in Chinatown which has a lot of sporting events and shows to attend, so if you're heading in this area but need dinner at an odd time, Zola is perfect. Also, Zola has a pre-fix menu option all year around, not just during restaurant week, that's 3 courses for $30.

Pros: Cool atmosphere, classy drinks, great food

Cons: Pricey

This upscale venue next to the Spy Museum is a great place to meet just for drinks at the bar or to meet for dinner and enjoy a fine dining experience. The wine list is great and the food is out of this world. The menu is comprised of straightforward American favorites but the modern presentation and dedication to flavor set it apart as a sophisticated dinner spot. Oh! And the bathrooms are worth the visit alone because of the secret flip-doorway.

Sleek yet inviting dcor, stations piled high with ice and bottles of champagne and liquor scattered around the dining room. We started with cocktails - non-alcoholic blueberry stinger is lime and blueberries and cranberry juice. We had the pre-fixe, watermelon salad refreshing, short-ribs a bit tough, The black cod was delicious, crispy skin and tender flesh. For dessert, we split "milk and honey" which tastes like heaven - nougatine topped with meringue and scattered with flowers. Also shared the lobster mac and cheese and fries sprinkled with gouda with the table

delicious greek food. i was kind of thrown off by the lack of size of some sandwiches, and wish they were a bit larger for the price i was paying for them. Not the best gyro I've had, but good.
