This exclusive spot from Ralph Lauren is the quintessential place for a martini and a burger. Though brand new, it feels like it’s been around for decades. It’s the perfect place to stop in at the end of a long day – if you can get a coveted reservation. Definitely call in advance, as walk-ins are not permitted.
