Fodor's Review

Words don't do justice to the remodeling of a former warehouselike Borders bookstore into this classy cavalcade of culinary hits bolstered by a below-ground live music hall where New Orleans trumpeteers and gospel singers perform into the night. Hungry for a sandwich? The oyster po'boy arrives crispy with a New Orleans-style tartar sauce. Prefer a salad? The salmon version takes a trip to the Mediterranean, with bulgur wheat and feta. And if dessert's your game, the salted caramel cheesecake goes for broke with caramel popcorn on top. The kitchen's ambitions were so big that it originally stayed open 24 hours a day; they've now scaled back the hours but will still work their tails off to please patrons.
