When we are asked for dining recommendations, it is a tough task not knowing what people want to eat, what their eating habits are, what part of the city they want to dine in, and so on. For my books, we actually experienced all 60+ places listed. However, for a quick reference list of our favorites, this should guide you well. I would suggest reservations for all of these establishments. Don't be fooled by the closing hours listed here. Most restaurant close their kitchens at 10pm even if the restaurant is still open until much later.
