Fodor's Expert Review Tempest

$$$$ North of Broad Seafood
Local artist Honey McCrary spent over a year building the 700-square-foot undersea mosaic on the ceiling of this seafood eatery. The beautiful artwork is reason alone to step inside, and it underscores the effort and intention put into the overall design and menu at this fine-dining haven along the City Market. The simple menu features 10 shareable plates—including ceviche with the day's catch—and five fish entrées, including seasonal specials like red drum.
