Fine Dining Spot #1: Habana Restaurant

As many of you already know by now, The LAB has tons of great spots to eat. Along with Popbar and the  Gypsy Den Cafe, The LAB serves up the best Cuban dishes at Habana Restaurant. With a shabby-chic vibe, Habana will provide you and that special someone with a beautiful candlelit dinner on their garden patio. Although they are open daily from 11 AM to 1 AM, we highly suggest going on Friday or Saturday. From 10:30 PM to 2 AM they have Habana Nights. On these weekend nights head on out for a double date and enjoy live entertainment with some mojitos and rum cocktails. Best of all, they serve a full dinner until 1 AM.

Do know you can experience fine dining during the day here as well. In fact, we recommend you Baker Block residents hosting any out of town guests to bring them to their Sunday brunches. Every week from 10 AM to 3 PM you can feast on beautiful displays of French toast, roast chicken, or paella.

Fine Dining Spot #2: Bosscat Kitchen and Libations

About three miles away from Baker Block is our next fine dining experience. Located at 4647 MacArthur Blvd is Bosscat Kitchen and Libations. For those of you looking for a delicious drink with your meal, this is the spot for you. Industrial yet chic, this Southern restaurant serves up classic dishes with an array of whiskeys. Here you can discover unique dishes you won’t find anywhere else. For instance, feel free to order their Nashville Hot Frog Legs. Additionally, once a month they have Whiskey Wednesday. A night perfect for a double date, the event lasts from 7 to 9 PM. Do know tickets are $85. However, once you have you a taste of what they are serving up, it will all be worth it.


From double dates, special occasions, or just a night out with that special someone, any of these spots will give you a very fine dining experience. So head on out, dine near your boutique apartment, and make memories to last a lifetime.
