1. Arlington Club, New York


Arlington Club gives "vibe dining" its name.

Why We Love It: Designed in Beaux-Arts style, arches are prevalent in the architectural details as well as in the leather bench seating. Brick detail, dark woods, tufted leather, crane neck ceiling lighting and decorative sconces work together in perfect harmony to create this rich and classic dining room!

Fat Rice likes to mix it up with a a lot of flavor as well as some industrial eclectic design at this Chicago hot spot.

Why We Love It: Check out the detailed ceiling tiles, horizontal reclaimed and ebony wall panels, old oak room divider, ebony stained floors, bold art, bright chairs and antique Chinese ceramics! All in all, it looks and, we hear, tastes amazing!

Spago, in Beverly Hills has been remodeled and it's looking sleek and modern!

Layfayette makes you want a cigar immediately with its moody traditional lounge.

Why We Love It: The warmth of walnut wood walls and ceiling is enriched by the flush mount ceiling fixtures, beautiful sidebar with dramatic floral decor, mirrors to reflect and create sexy light and classic French cafe chairs. Cozy, sexy, and totally delicious!

6. Juniper & Ivy, San Diego


Junipuer & Ivy is an architectural gem with industrial rustic vibe.

Why We Love It: Metal, concrete and wood are the main elements here which make for an industrial yet rustic feel. There is natural lighting and simple architectural detail which keeps in line with the style. Modern seating, bold pops of art and simple plant accents make the space casual and easy going.

Cool palette, neutral wood floors, sage back walls in the tiny seating nook, globe drop lights, bar seating and ghost chairs with simple plant accents make this zen space relaxing in it's approach to fine dining.

8. Maysville, New York


Maysville has us all ears, eyes and tastebuds with this stunning glamorous modern space that highlights geo design lighting and graphic elements!

Why We Love It: The granite counters have an organic movement down the entire bar and the carved wood seats give an industrial chic touch. The walls look like they are textured in a dark slate and the art work is bold and scaled perfectly for the space. The checkered floor is a fun way to keep the kinetic energy moving and the mouth watering!
