THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Green Room Restaurant Review

: The Green Room has a snazzy contemporary atmosphere and a menu to match. The eclectic menu, one that allows for inexpensive dining (turkey meatloaf) or something a bit grander (grilled tuna steak or porterhouse), is a joyful read. Two to try: the shrimp and scallop kabob with forbidden black rice and the duck breast with plum relish. The restaurant-cum-nightclub is sleek and chic in every way. There must be at least 21 kinds of vodka on the wall behind the impressive bar on the left side of the room, and polished hardwood floors, paper over cloth, table candles, banquettes, and a second floor lounge-loft. Something for every taste. Dress tastefully, as in nice casual. Go early if you like dining on the quiet; late if you like din with you dinner (and a DJ who spins the music hot and heavy). Service is incredibly efficient and pleasant, too. The wine list is heavy into reds (about 25 in all) and ranges right on up there to an Opus One for $185. It looks like The Green Room is poised to bring in some big bucks.
