Until its modern renovation, the Chiltern Firehouse initially served the community as a fire station. Today it serves delectable delights like blackened salmon and, crab-stuffed doughnuts! The restaurant operates under hotel magnate André Balaz’s who maintains two hip restaurants in Hollywood and New York City. The restaurant is a celebrity hotspot, so there’s a good chance you’ll be in same room as Lindsey Lohan or Orlando Bloom, however, unless your dating either, getting a table will be quite the feat! We recommend making a reservation during the slower hours of the day.
