THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED N9ne Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: It's sleek, it's hot, and it remains one of the top spots downtown after years on the scene. Everything from ostentatious shellfish platters to steaks and chops peppers the appealing, if pricey, menu. The décor almost outdoes the food, but the food does win by a nose. Start with the crispy rock shrimp or fiery calamari entangled with hot peppers and lemons. Waltz into the Prime-aged, Kansas City strip and buttery lobster tail. Then, finish off with the chocolate bread pudding. Sound tame? It's not. Sound boring? Far from it. The food, while familiar, is full of flavor and as easy on the eyes as the diners gracing the tables. During major conventions, the restaurant is open on Sundays (but do call ahead).
