Since opening six months ago, the multilevel Chase complex (Chase Fish & Oyster Bar below, Chase restaurant above) has quickly earned praise as being the complete package for a grand night out. The Oyster Bar’s all-day menu is a seafood lover’s dream, featuring a daily raw bar stocked with the best available bivalves, seafood towers and daily fish specials cooked the way you want. The lunch menu also features some of the best fried chicken in the Downtown core. Chase upstairs is more refined, packed every night with a progressive Americana-themed menu great for dates or group dinners.
Why it's hot: Beautiful interiors, sweeping views of the Financial District and modern North American plates.
Must order: Whole-roasted chicken for two ($71)
Insider tip: The oyster bar's menu makes for some great pre-dinner snacking, along with a great wine program to get the night started off properly.
