nicks restauranteNICK’S RISTORANTE

Perhaps best known for it’s cigar lounge*, I adore Nick’s for the incredibly personable service. The owners go out of their way to make sure that every patron feels like family. Anniversaries are commemorated with complimentary glasses of champagne and they will be offering Valentine’s specials the 14th-16th.

*Non smokers, have no fear, the dining room is truly smoke free and I say this as someone sensitive to cigarette smoke.
