This refined eatery (aka Casa Havana) glamorously channels South Beach and Santa Monica, with a sexy black bar dispensing luscious libations, an earthy color scheme, and sparkly ecru curtains dividing dining spaces. Founding executive chef Michaell Farrell hails from the Big Easy, and his coastal cuisine travels from Nantucket to New Orleans with aplomb. The menu offers mostly small plates and large plates to be shared family-style. Seafood is the star, unsurprisingly. Witness the sea bass with mojo, chipotle creamed corn, black beans, and roast pork croquettes, and wild tiger prawns with black pearl couscous, pickled cauliflower, tomato fondue, and saffron emulsion. Carnivores needn't despair: the sous-vide beef tenderloin practically dissolves in your mouth. Pairings are suggested for each dish, and the wine list features several fine $35 options and some surprising high-end bargains. Wine Master dinners pair several courses with wines (Marchese di Barolo to Gosset champagne), often introduced by guest winemakers or owners from as far afield as Tuscany, Australia, Napa, and Chile.
