My favorite spot for breakfast or brunch. The chicken and waffles are famous but everything is pretty darn good. Try their salted caramel gelato for dessert!

This restaurant is tucked away on the ground floor and you'd never imagine the delicious farm-fresh French cuisine they make here. Great for any meal, but awesome for a romantic dinner!

Arts & Culture

A world-class museum that you didn't even know was there! An impressive collection of art through many different periods, but the special exhibits usually focus on contemporary art.
