When you step into Romano’s at the relatively new JW Marriott Sahar, you may feel like you’ve walked into a New York brasserie. The leather sofas, exposed lighting, open kitchen and dark wooden décor create an atmosphere that is perfect for elevated family dinners, important business meetings and romantic date nights. The huge space features two levels, with the upstairs area looking down at the kitchen and seating. There are chalkboards featuring cocktail specials and a wall of wine, my personal favourite décor element.
