The private, themed dining rooms at House of Embers pay homage to classic movie stars like Omar Sharif and Rudolf Valentino. They’re a quirky, fun way to spend a romantic evening out if you get a night out sans kids; but it’s worth a visit to this kitschy-cool supper club with the little ones in tow, too. The larger dining spaces cater to families and larger groups, who enjoy the “eat dessert first” philosophy of a staff that brings a basket of warm cinnamon rolls to the table to start the meal. The children of the original owners, both graduates of the Culinary Institute of America, are in charge of the kitchen and turn out mouth-watering renditions of dry-rubbed ribs, Angus steaks and Austrian veal. Kids can choose from mini portions of grown-up fare like lobster and barbecued chicken.
