Fodor's Review

Near Wentworth Mansion, this former residential home is full of hand-carved marble fireplaces and stained-glass windows. The award-winning eatery sets a sophisticated tone with low lighting and yellow roses atop each table. Executive Chef Marc Collins emphasizes seasonal offerings, highlighted by the menu's heirloom tomato salad, a deconstructed BLT made with bacon gelée, romaine lettuce foam, and white-grain toast. Collins also shows off his Texan extraction, serving

an antelope dish, the free-range game procured from the Broken Arrow Ranch in Texas hill country. The tender variation spiced with horseradish is a must-eat for the adventurous. For those looking for an intimate, romantic meal, the quiet comfort of Circa 1886 is hard to top.
