Raoul’s (Restaurant/Bar/Retail Reviews)

Since 1975, Raoul’s has been known for a few things: celebrity sightings; a tarot reader on the second floor; and a burger, sauced with foie gras, the orders limited to a dozen a day. It’s available only at the bar, so arrive early and belly up. Then ask...Read Full Story
