People love chasing restaurants with impossible reservation lists, but for some diners, a tricky table isn’t enough. No, they want to eat at a restaurant so exclusive, its very location is a secret. And it’s not just trendy speakeasies — dinner spots across the nation are hiding themselves in temples, gas stations, or even other restaurants to provide patrons with a grown-up version of hide-and-seek. Lucky for you, we hunted down a few key picks to save you the trouble, so it’ll be more like hide-and-seek where the other person is wearing a tracking device.
Ready or not, here are nine restaurants with better covers than James Bond:
Saam (Los Angeles, CA)
Nestled in the back of Spanish master chef José Andrés’s The Bazaar, Saam smells of rich mahogany and features many leatherbound books — no, seriously, the place is styled a bit like Donald Trump’s study. The prix-fixe menu is always rotating and offers plenty of dishes you can’t get at The Bazaar, making this library exponentially cooler than P.S. 115’s.
Bogie’s Place (Boston, MA)
This Beantown pick is buried inside the beloved gastropub JM Curley, and advertises itself as an “adults only” destination. But that doesn’t mean a 7pm burlesque show; rather, it refers to the grown-up 1920s steakhouse vibes that would make a guy like Bogart feel at home, if he weren’t extremely dead.
