Fodor's Review

Although this chic spot with copper-and-black decor is a ways from downtown, it's a local favorite thanks to its great food and casual ambience. Here you'll find patrons—some wearing jeans, others in suits—dining in the dim light on what appear to be pieces of art framed by triangular white plates. Start with fresh oysters or a blue-lump crab cake, then move on to seared filet mignon with a black-peppercorn brandy sauce or lump blue-crab meat on filet mignon, topped with béarnaise sauce. If you're not full, try the New Orleans chocolate bread pudding, or the white-chocolate bread pudding with macadamia nuts.
