    The dining experience was AMAZING and I highly recommend Chef Graham Elliot's take on s'mores. The sweetness of the graham, ganache and chocolate really was the highlight of my visit. ;-)

    Go here for a special occasion (or any day if you're a big spender) and definitely go for the tasting menu with wine pairings. The food and service are some of the best I've ever had.

    Inspired flavors and textures keep us coming back, as do new-to-us ingredients such as marsh samphire and dishes like Colorado lamb with pea cannelloni and roasted Jidori chicken with carrots. Read more

    I ate here two years ago and wasn't that impressed. I came back last night and was blown away. Definitely deserving if the second Michelin Star. Loved the tasting menu and music.

    Since dropping his last name, Graham Elliot is now one with his eponymous restaurant. Elliot throws rules out the window, leaning towards playful food like truffled popcorn and sweetbread empanadas.

    It’s hard to notice the casual subtleties, like waiters in Converse or the comfortable décor, when there’s a root beer–glazed pork chop topped with corn nuts and watermelon sitting in front of you.

    Graham Elliot's bistronomic restaurant has a contemporary american cuisine influenced menu. The butternut bisque has toasted coconut and pumpkin seeds that make each better than the last.

    Wow - incredibly technical, delicate and beautiful food that will leave your mouth agape long after the last bite is gone. More words won't do Graham Elliot's food justice.. reserve a table already!

    The ice cream they use for the indoor s'mores is incredible. It tastes like a campfire. I can't think of any other explanation than that. It's a smoky marshmallow taste that compliments perfectly.

    This eponymous restaurant from a rising culinary star does not disappoint. Its small-plate offerings, like a gigantic buffalo chicken wing with Budweiser foam, are a joyous, delicious laugh.

    Get the drink the Freebird: tequila, lavender, honey and a dash of maraschino. Delicious and not too sweet!

    Don't miss the foie-ly pops, foie gras rolled in pop rocks all on a stick. This is haute cuisine that looks like junk food. -- Andrew Zimmern, Bizarre Foods Read more

    The foie-ly pops may not be on the physical menu but they'll still make it for you if you ask.

    The food is good but you'll have to order a lot of it. The portions are ridiculously small.
