Fodor's Review

The recently remodeled room with distressed brick walls, rustic wood tables, and vintage waterfront photos suits the restaurant’s commitment to modern all-natural coastal cuisine. Start with the refreshing “Local” cocktail—one of several named for regions of the country, and pair it with sharable starters like the citrus-chili-flavored panfried baby artichokes or spicy black chicken wings and house-made kimchi cucumbers. Locals as well as guests at the adjacent boutique Hotel Solamar savor comfort-food entrées like the brown butter basted porkchop and grits or bacon-wrapped monk fish. One of the city’s top pastry chefs contributes meal-ending sweets ranging from yogurt gelato to Nutella-flavored pudding. The open-air rooftop lounge upstairs serves up skyline views.
