This is my favorite expensive restaurant in Fresno. It is located in the Tower District, named after the Tower Theatre, built in 1939. There are numerous, bars, restaurants, and clubs, all within walking distance. It is on Fulton, south of Olive. The interior is small, so reservations are a must. The walls are red brick, usually with art pieces displayed. The front doors look like they are from a 1930's cartoon, there is a hardwood floor, and lights with handmade purple glass shades, hang over the bar. My favorite appetizer is the baked garlic, with goat cheese, in olive oil. The salads are always fresh and exotic. They serve a New York Steak, and a Ribeye Steak, that are both killer. On Friday and Saturday, I always order one of the Specials. The last one I had was, Pan Rosted Beef Tenderloin with Cambozola Garlic Mashed Potoes, Cremini Mushrooms and Ground Mustard Cream Sauce. It was delicious. They have a small, but impressive wine list. There is a, very cool, comfortable, patio, in back, where you can drink, or dine. After the dinner hour, there is often live music, or a DJ. You will see patrons in coats and ties , and evening dresses, and patrons in T-shirts and jeans. The place has a very cool vibe. Ask for Susan to be your server. She is a total professional, and has an incredible sense of humor. Full bar.
Pros: Great food, great vibe
Cons: Closed Mondays
