The Southeast Restaurants



Riddle and Finns

Riddle and Finns Review

White tiles, bare metal tables, and sparkling chandeliers set the tone as soon as you walk through the door of this casually elegant restaurant—the more laid-back sister to The house specialty is oysters, fresh and sustainably sourced, served with or without a tankard of black velvet (champagne and Guinness) on the side. Other options include sea bass with bubble and squeak (a traditional dish of fried vegetables and potatoes) or lobster, served with garlic and herb butter or thermidor. They don't take bookings, so come early or be prepared to wait. It's also open weekends for breakfast (and, yes, they serve oysters and champagne).
