As we wind down to the readers choice for Top Restaurants, we have three more survey results to post. The first few choices didn’t surprise me, but third choice made no sense to me, especially when compared to the others. I don’t have anything against the restaurant, it’s just that it has a totally different vibe.
Out of 610 votes:

Honorable mention: Bluehour
Higgin’s restaurant has a classy, white linen feel to it, and I’ve had several business lunches there. However, you are more likely to find me in the bar, which is less formal, but still a good place to talk. The Heathman is similar – white linens and a fairly wide variety of dishes on the menu, though the food definitely has the “Jakes” touch. Little Bird is a French Bistro, a bit louder than the others, but with a focus on simpler food.
