The two of you will be transported to Santorini as soon as you walk into this all-white, two-story building that reflects Greece’s unique culture. From the stunning architecture to the olive trees, they really didn’t miss a single detail.

Once you’ve satisfied your appetite, head on over to Raines Law Room for post-dinner cocktails.
