Don’t let the Financial District address scare you, Hillstone has a less formal feel than other restaurants in the area. One thing that adds greatly to that is the casual attire. If you find yourself on State Street craving a burger for dinner, this is a great place to stop. You can skip the $32 Prime Rib and the $39 Filet and in favor of the more reasonably priced $16 cheeseburger. As pointed out on the menu, the burgers are house- ground each morning.
