Panorama's unerring renderings and savory interpretations of Italian classic cuisine soar even higher on bacchanal flights paired impeccably by sommelier. The restaurant’s national oenophile pedigree owes to the 120 different wines available daily by the glass and its yearly tally of 800 different wines on the menu. These in combination with the homemade pastas, authentic veal dishes, and fresh seafood specialties create the perfect escape to the Northern Italian Region, no passport necessary.

The upscale steakhouse is both classic and contemporary; while the walls are lined with old-fashioned bookshelves, the chairs are utterly modern, designed in bright green and white leather. The same goes for the menu, which offers traditional signature steaks like dry aged rib eye and New York strip, alongside more creative, fun items like kobe beef sliders and tater tots. With the swanky décor, decadent menu, and first-class service, Barclay Prime is the perfect spot for a special evening.
