Being a casual bistro inside of a four-star hotel has its benefits like validated parking with an optional valet and high class ambience. The updated lobby's marble finishing offers a cool, sleek look and candlelight offers warm ambience that is striking and sophisticated. Aside from the absence of the famous chandelier, Asador stays true to the nearly three decades old hotel. In keeping with the casual theme, Asador's open dining room makes the restaurant an extension of the hotel lobby. The high ceilings and contemporary furnishings lend the dining room elegance, but the exposure to the lobby reminds diners they're eating in a hotel. Entree prices run in the $20 to $38 range, yet waiters are in jeans. Customers in the dining room can watch ESPN beaming from plasma TVs in the bar area. Tourist-heavy groups of diners adorned in jean shorts and baseball caps make up most of the clientele. The self-described American cuisine menu veers toward Latin and Southwestern influences while staying true to its organic intentions. Ingredients for every dish are beautiful and fresh.
