Description:

Dining And Dancing Hot Spot.

A lot has changed about The Nest since Kevin and Dodi Henry took over the restaurant and nightlife hot spot in 2010. They’ve revamped the menu and given the place a more modern look, for starters. But what stands out most, according to the couple, is how the customer base has grown to include, well, just about everyone.

“It really is 19 to 90. We get a lot of younger people now,” says Kevin. “Twenty-somethings get here and they’re having the time of their lives out on the dance floor with older locals who love to dance. The key word is just fun.”

The Nest — which offers live music seven nights a week in addition to DJs on the weekends — now opens up a back banquet room for overflow dancing some nights and the popular spot, voted Top 100 Hot Spot Restaurants in America by OpenTable, often has lines out the door well after midnight.

And that’s just the bar. The upscale restaurant’s dining room features a menu mixed with both classic European dishes (many, including the popular stuffed cabbage rolls and Adriatic sausages, are Dodi’s mother’s recipes) along with modern California cuisine like seared ahi tuna or a kale salad tossed with pepitas and crispy yams.

For those who want to try a little of everything, the bar offers its own menu, including smaller versions of many of the dining room’s dishes along with special bar offerings like fish tacos and a Nest burger.

Kevin, who also happens to be a musician, is the piano bar’s main act on Sundays and Mondays and then opens for the legendary Tim Burleson Wednesday through Sunday. Occasionally, patrons are treated to unexpected special guests. “We’ve had The Weeknd here, Drake, the Ten Tenors,” Kevin recounts. “We’ve even had Tommy Thayer from KISS get up and jam with our band. You just never know.”
