3120 W. Cary St.
Second Place: New York Deli
Third Place: F.W. Sullivan's Fan Bar & Grille
There's something decidedly breezy yet chic about sidling up to the long bar at Can Can. Perhaps it's a sunny Saturday in Carytown, and you're stopping in for a midshopping cocktail. Maybe it's a spontaneous after-show drink. Or a happy hour when you feel like making a few new connections — or sparks. After all, readers also vote Can Can as Best Restaurant to See and Be Seen. And right around the bar might just be the best spot for it. It's been five years since Style Weekly named Can Can as its Restaurant of the Year. But the wine lists, good service and ambiance remind you that it isn't all about the food. Just down the street, New York Deli makes an impression on you with its mix of people, music and atmosphere. And F.W. Sullivan's is always throwing out new themes and specials — not to mention good vibes on its outdoor patio — to keep things fun.
