Food and Beverage:
- Guard & Grace
Named after the chef’s daughter, Guard and Grace is a take on the big, fancy, modern steakhouse – miles and miles of fiery grills and charcuterie, oyster bar and bar tops, private rooms, and a posh, walk-in, floor-to-high-ceiling glassed wine cellar – yet still, with more of a bright, airy playfulness than the usual dark, stiff, mano a mano atmosphere.
