Restaurant | "Nexxt Cafe"
The menu at Nexxt is very extensive…it runs for pages and pages and food prices are extremely reasonable. After discretely spying on other tables, we found that the entrees were so big that my friend and I decided to share the shrimp scampi with linguine. The dish arrived with six humongous and perfectly cooked shrimps, and the sauce was buttery, lemony, and delicious. Given the large portions, sharing entrees is definitely recommended. Other dishes enjoyed by our group were the Parmesan-crusted chicken (I had a small bite—-very tasty!) and the Asian chicken salad. We did not get a chance to try dessert because we were all so full from dinner.
We made friends with our very friendly and attentive Colombian waiter Andres, who suggested that we try Mynt Lounge for our first night of partying.

We arrived at Mynt upon the recommendation of our waiter at Nexxt Cafe. The bouncers at the door were extremely strict about who they allowed inside the lounge. Our group, five Asian women fully clad in clubbing gear, was forced to stand on line for at least 15 to 20 minutes, even though the lounge was practically EMPTY inside. These pretentious clubs/lounges need to maintain the illusion of exclusivity. When we finally received the privilege of entering Mynt, we found that the decor was sleek, modern, sparse, and semi-futuristic, while the walls were colored light shades of green. There was a 40-foot bar and modular white couches spanned the lounge from front to bank. A unique aromatherapy system mysteriously infused the air with fresh scents like mint. The DJ’s booth sat in the back of the lounge. That night the DJ was partial towards house music…not our favorite, especially for dancing. The Mynt crowd were not great dancers. As the night progressed, the lounge got too crowded and hot, so we decided to check out of Mynt a bit early for a "going-out" night.
Suffice it to say, despite all the hoopla about getting in, we didn’t have the greatest time once we got in. If you do dare to show up to Mynt’s front door, be prepared to wait on line with the plebeians unless you show up with your own personal celebrity friend. Open Wed-Sat 11:30pm-5am. http://www.myntlounge.com
