Fodor's Expert Review The Grill Room
With its elegant table settings and canvases depicting the lives of British nobility, the Grill Room on the second floor of the Windsor Court has always been a beacon of class and an elegant setting for special occasions (keep your eyes peeled: celebrities in town for local film shoots often snag tables here). The creative, Cajun- and Creole-influenced menu dreamed up by Le Cirque–trained chef Daniel Causgrove might include a pecan-pumpkin soup with vanilla-bourbon panna cotta, seared Gulf tuna, or duck breast with caramelized fig jus. There's a decadent vegetarian tasting menu available, too, with insightful and unusual wine selections by sommelier John Mitchell, who draws from a deep cellar with an extensive Bordeaux collection. If you're looking for a splurge meal in town, this is it.
