Delicious food, attentive service. I loved the outdoor seating and the beautiful flowers. We ate several meals at Basils and the staff was most accommodating.

here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic
mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also
find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred
restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping
fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The
