What began as a speakeasy in Midtown during Prohibition has become one of the most historically significant dining destinations in the country. The three restaurants and ten private rooms serving fine American cuisine have seated every president from Eisenhower to Bush Jr. and most of Hollywood Royalty (including Bogart and Bacall’s first date). Even the kitchen served as the site of clandestine affections of Ernest Hemingway and the girlfriend of gangster “Legs” Diamond. Whether you dine on fine American cuisine in the Bar Room beneath the toy-covered ceiling or have cocktails by the wood-burning fireplace at Bar '21' and Lounge, casual dress is not permitted. The same goes for the Upstairs Room, where the salon-inspired atmosphere and Wynne Evans murals have become a popular backdrop for marriage proposals.
