If you haven't seen the inside of the restaurant before, you might be surprised to find how much its interior differs from the aesthetic of the rest of the resort. The restaurant, designed by architect David Rockwell, is sleek and modern without feeling fussy, giving the space an element of drama. The highlight is definitely the view, which is best enjoyed on the large outdoor patio.

Our evening began with a cocktail from J&G's bar. The Hanky Panky -- a combination of gin, sweet vermouth, and Fernet Branca -- was a balanced and easy-to-like concoction with the ability to appeal to light and dark spirit drinkers alike.

From there we dove into a sampling of dishes from the restaurant's newly introduced fall menu. Executed by chef de cuisine Jacques Qualin, who's been with the restaurant since it opened in 2009, the menu features entrees and sides with both French and Asian-inspired food.
