Boasts simple surf and turf in a bistro setting with a full oyster and raw bar, amazing mac and cheese, local ingredients, as well as great desserts. Stop by for dinner and the late-night scene or a quick prowl through the half-price bar menu at happy hour.
Your amuse bouche is a black eyed pea collard green fritter, and the evening gets more interesting as you progress from venison tartare and blue crab and boudin noir tartine to bone marrow and foie gras custard and black garlic fettucine. Get serious with wild mushroom pot pie, red grouper, or a grilled NY strip. $72 per person with wine pairings available.
