Located in the Heights neighborhood, the Glass Wall offers seasonal menus of modern American cuisine created by chef Jorge Rodriguez. Adorned with surfer-inspired artwork from Ashton Howard, the dining room is always bustling with patrons coming to eat menu favorites, such as the potato chip chicken fried steak, six-point Berkshire pork chop, and Chesapeake crab cake made with jumbo blue lump crab. Hand-selected by Shepard Ross, the wine list includes many small boutique wine producers, and wine pairings can be added to any entrée or appetizer.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

At his Sydney flagship, Aussie restaurateur–turned–international star <a href="/articles/wine-bar-superchefs-and-their-best-recipes">Luke Mangan</a> serves his signature modern Australian food in a grand room filled with oversize silk lamp shades and massive columns. Business travelers, sports types and the chef’s celebrity friends are among those who show up for chef Joe Pavlovich’s glamorous twists on bistro dishes. A nine-meter-tall wine tower displays bottlings from both the New World and the Old, specializing in rare wines and Champagnes.

We loved: Loin of lamb stuffed with Armagnac and poached fruit.
