What’s it like inside?

On the first floor of the Contemporary just past the front desk, you walk into The Wave’s lounge, with the dining room to the left—the lounge is usually packed after 5 p.m., and it’s hard to snag a seat. The adjoining dining room has the feel of an upscale coffee shop, with wooden tables and white-linen napkins.

What are the specialties?

The Seared Gnocchi with forest mushrooms, sweet potatoes, rainbow swiss chard, and brown butter parmesan-sage cream, this dish is rich and full of comforting flavors. For dessert the Chocolate Flight (with Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding, Brownie Creme Brulee, and German Chocolate Cake) is irresistible.
