Executives and upscale tourists alike are drawn to this handsome, 9,000-square-foot eatery for its "gourmet backyard cuisine"—that's how owner and celebrated chef Kent Rathbun describes his Texas-based chain. This branch is in the chi-chi Domain right across from Joe DiMaggio's. Seafood features prominently in the inventive menu, the star is Allen Brothers dry-aged prime steak, served with a choice of six sauces. Entrées, from a tender grilled flatiron steak with portobello whipped potatoes to a Cajun grilled redfish sandwich, are attractively plated and well conceived. If you want to go upscale on a tight budget, try the pizza-size three-cheese focaccia with caramelized shallots and portobellos for $10. In 2007 the Austin Chronicle called Jasper's fried chicken, with its perfectly crispy skin, the best in town (it's served only at lunch on weekends). Servers are attentive, but not overly familiar. Decor is midtown-Manhattan modern.
