You may not have dined at Morton's before, but probably have heard someone somewhere rave about the place - and for a good reason. This has been the first-ever location of the Morton's Steakhouse and has a history that dates back to 1978. In this City of Beef, steaks don't get much better than this. A trademark Morton's experience involves a sophisticated tableside presentation of your entree choices (fresh cuts of meat, live lobster). Be sure to take advantage of the extensive wine list. The refined and well-informed staff is almost as well attired as the patrons.

Some bars are good for game-watching or copious amounts of beer-drinking. Others are good places to wind down after a long workday, catch up with friends, and sample a pint or two of a beer you've never heard of. The Long Room, which serves an eclectic selection of worldwide beers for reasonable prices, is the latter type of bar. With over 10 beers rotating on tap and more than 70 bottled beers, it's the ultimate destination for beer snobs. But beer-drinkers of all ages and types seem to enjoy The Long Room, which radiates a local-but-not-dive vibe. The bar also boats a vintage photo booth, free parking and a smoking patio. - Betsy Mikel
