Here's the run down!
We started with apps in the bar, Artichoke and Goat Cheese Flatbread and Chipotle Shrimp Flatbread. (Sorry, no pic. I'm afraid I was too busy eating.) We were treated to live music, including everything from Billy Joel to Maroon 5.
Then it was off to the private dining room.

The food was delicious. The service was great. And the atmosphere was comfortable and upscale at the same time. It's a chain, yes. But it's an excellent one and a great addition to the current NorthPark options.
