I had the pleasure of enjoying an evening of champagne and seafood at the incredibly elegant, yet inviting, Magdalena. Located at The Ivy Hotel, Magdalena describes itself as a fine dining bistro. While maintaining an air of sophistication, Magdalena is also surprisingly relaxed and welcoming. After sipping some amazing champagne and noshing on some of the freshest seafood I've ever had, I felt right at home at Magdalena. My new goal in life is to enjoy a sit-down dinner in the restaurant's wine cellar.
Located in the R House food hall is R Bar. R Bar features an impressive drink menu filled with creative and fun cocktails. You'll enjoy an afternoon or evening hanging out with friends in this laid back and casual environment. R House is family friendly so feel free to bring the kiddos. The environment as a whole reminded me of hanging out at the mall food court in high school - only with way better food and a killer cocktail bar.
