From Curtis Stone (the Australian celeb chef behind Maude) and his brother comes Gwen, an upscale butcher shop meets whole-animal restaurant with a five-course tasting menu. On it, you'll find everything from slow-roasted ribs to handmade orecchiette, plus charcuterie and other "Butchers Scraps." The ultimate bonus: whether or not you're already a fan, you should know that Gwen serves Australia's revered St. Ali coffee -- a rare find in the US.
Don’t bring your vegetarian friends to Curtis Stone’s Gwen. This place is an all-out celebration of meat, and even has an in-house butcher shop that supplies the kitchen and sells everything from house-made sausages to dry-aged meat and game birds. Order the stunning Charcuterie Plate, creamy Foie Gras Torchon, Ricotta-Stuffed Agnolotti, and a 42-ounce Australian Blackmore Wagyu Bone-in Ribeye.
