While the steakhouse menu and artisanal handcrafted cocktails might indicate otherwise, the vibe inside Eleven is pretty casual. Rather than pretend the pool isn’t there, designers have played up the watery milieu with wicker furniture, white floor-to-ceiling drapes and giant sliding glass doors, which are left open on cooler nights so that diners can get a full view of the Grecian patio and starry night. Outside, a handful of couches plus an outdoor fireplace make it a fabulous spot for after-dinner cocktails or dessert. Another key focal point is the restaurant’s smallish exhibition kitchen where a large communal table accommodates larger parties.
