Farm to Table, Romantic Dining: Request table 31 when you make a reservation at Biga on the Banks, and you'll end up with the best view in the house. You won't be gazing at the river, but you will have an eye on chef Bruce Auden as he concocts lobster ravioli on arugula and guinea ham in guajillo sauce. Tasting menus are a draw, but the food is equally as interesting when ordered a la carte....

This new restaurant overlooking the Riverwalk has a balcony bar, dining room, and private dining room. Valet parking nightly.
