Because of its location on the third floor of an older building, Alo feels like a secret despite being one of the city’s best fine dining restaurants. The tasting menu changes regularly, with lots of seasonal ingredients in the mix, but you’ll usually see their standard Hokkaido scallops with truffle and brown butter or a 60-day-aged ribeye on the menu. You can always expect impeccable service, great wine pairings, and beautifully plated food, but you should also know that this is somewhere you’ll have to plan ahead for—reservations open two months in advance. If you can’t snag a spot, check out their more relaxed sister bar and restaurant Aloette, which serves things like burgers, prawn tacos, and lemon meringue pie.
