Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant

For an elegant night on the town, you won’t do better than the venerable Dakota, where the music is world-class (it’s where Prince recently did six surprise gigs), the steaks are well marbled and the martinis are icy and big. This 20-year institution brings jazz from Havana, blues from New Orleans and vocal stylings from heaven. MECCA BOS

The Dakota's bar, restaurant and peerless live-music venue all work in well-rehearsed harmony. The food boasts the nuance, imagination and technical prowess of some of the city's top kitchens, but its tone is playfully approachable and full of surprises. At dnner, highlights include crostini with a glossy smoked trout rillette; fried oysters on a celery-root salad; curry-rubbed pork, roasted in an apple cider grilled lamb, and even plain-old roast chicken and wild rice. The wine list has a wide range of all-American choices.
