Encounter Restaurant serves classic and modern martinis in a circular space with brightly hued lava lamps and a crater-shaped bar. The bar's libations are the primary draw, including siganture cocktails like The Black Hole made with Absolut vodka and a splash of Chambord, but there's also a food menu of bistro fare. Popular selections include pepper-crusted New York steak, fried calamari, and tuna tartare.
