The Boarding House Restaurant Review

: Master sommelier Alpana Singh’s first restaurant after a successful run as host of “Check Please!” focuses on New American dishes artfully crafted by chef Tanya Baker, as well as a well-thought-out wine list with many unique finds. The lofty, four-story space showcases a lively indoor-outdoor bar on the ground level, while the dining room gets dressed up with arched windows, showy chandeliers, plush leather booths and extra space for seated private dinners. Downstairs, the cellar lounge boasts its own bar and event space for up to 100 people, reception-style.
