Foundation Room Restaurant Review:

Exclusive, sexy and private: These are the words that describe Foundation Room at House of Blues. Foundation Room appeals to an audience of well-heeled travelers and business people looking to impress clients, because the place requires an annual subscription to achieve entry. The otherworldly bar and series of lounges are festooned with enough exotic (mostly Asian) artifacts to fill a modest-size museum. Edged with curtained "cheaters" booths and illuminated by a mesmerizing central chandelier, the octagonal dining room is a fantasy in the Middle Eastern mode. The menu matches the visual spectacle, with such entrées as rack of lamb, double-cut pork chops and lemon ricotta ravioli. Small plates offer such delights as crispy Gulf oyster tacos and Angus beef sliders. The wine list is impressive, and the service as coddling as you'd expect at this high price level. The molten chocolate cake is, in a word, indulgent.
