AAA Inspector Notes
Subdued abstract artwork meets turn-of-the-20th-century charm at this vintage storefront bistro. The menu of steaks, chops, pasta and seafood shows sophistication and creativity. Flavor profiles are sourced from Asian, French and Southern cooking, among others. Enjoy dishes such as tempura-fried scallops, grilled rib-eye with onion confit, shrimp étouffée and bourbon-molasses pork chop. Seafood chowder is a perennial specialty. Gluten-free and light-bite menus are available. Crème brûlée and chocolate soufflé are hallmarks of the dessert menu, which often includes other house-made sweets. The lengthy wine list includes more than 15 selections by the glass; on stock is an array of bottled craft beer.
