Modern American Food in a Hip,
If it seems like Hub 51 is a continual party, that’s just what creators R.J. and Jerrod Melman want. Their dad, Lettuce founder Rich Melman, always told them that the restaurant business should be fun, and, as Jerrod now interprets that advice, "We want to be as playful as possible, and have a good time with our customers and the people we work with. Our goal for the menu was to create food we like to eat,” says R.J. The concept features a combination of cuisines including American, Mexican, and Asian food. They loaded it up with sushi, tacos, steaks, sandwiches, and burgers. Great salads and appetizers like the arugula Caesar and Pulled Chicken Nachos appeal to the bar crowd, while the filet mignon steak tacos and the charred sake salmon serve notice that Hub 51 is providing both a great time and wonderful food.
With dozens of beers, wines and cocktails, Hub 51 is all about what you like. Sub 51, a private lounge below the restaurant, becomes an exclusive nightclub on weekends, while space in the main restaurant is also available for private parties and semi-private events.
