Dirty Martini Restaurant & Lounge Restaurant Review

: Despite its name and bar-focused existence, this destination is as much restaurant as it is nightclub. Indeed, from lunchtime on through to the wee hours, patrons can partake of bowls of hot pasta or a black-and-blue burger and even, if they aren’t going back to work, down a Dirty Martini. Daily happy hours mean more Dirty Martinis, or maybe wine, all as a prelude to dinners with heartier fare, such as veal or lamb chops, pan-seared lobsters or beef medallions. If available, try the Tahitian cheesecake with passion fruit for dessert. The nightclub element at this downtown venue means the action goes on and on, and the food does too, so you won’t go home hungry.
