Restaurant | New American
Now in its sixth decade, Canlis is a citadel of civility in an increasingly cacophonous restaurant world. It has successfully evolved over three generations of family ownership, remaining reverent about the past yet relevant to the present. Brothers Mark and Brian Canlis have relaxed service without loosening standards, uncluttered the tabletops without forsaking formality and built a team in the front and back of the house that feels seamlessly aligned. Chef Brady Williams brings a pared-down, Japanese aesthetic to his tasting menu and to the seasonal plates that join Canlis classics on the main menu. The nimble, knowledgeable wine staff was recently nominated for a James Beard Award. Dinner is for those comfortable in the lap of luxury. The bar and lounge (expanded in Spring 2016) welcomes walk-ins.

From The Times
Timeless yet relevant, Canlis is superb under new chef (April 14, 2016)
By Providence Cicero
The 65-year-old fine-dining establishment is unquestionably a four-star dining experience with 29-year-old chef Brady Williams, who joined Canlis a year ago.
