Like many other hotel restaurants, you’ll have to shell out some serious doubloons for your meal at Safina, a Mediterranean spot at the InterContinental in the Medical Center. But stick to the tender braised lamb shanks and maybe a side of roasted brussels sprouts that could pass for dessert, and it’s all worth it. Food aside, hanging out at the hotel is reason enough to come here—the inside of Safina is open and breezy with metallic art installations hanging from the ceiling and pastoral oil paintings on the walls.
