A classic large upscale American bar with big framed televisions and a baby grand piano. The bar counter alone seats 20 and out back is an equally grand restaurant seating some 150. Benny's is not on the fashionista's trail and not famed for its cocktails but this is one of our favourite spots for brunch as the menu is so darned good. The glass walled wine cellar behind the bar and the Enomatic wine machines are a sign of how seriously wine is taken here.
