This more "upscale'ish" American seafood eatery is within walking distance of most hotels near the Mag Mile and the loop. There are two eating spaces, the front where the bar is, and in back. We like the tile flooring and modern feel. But most of all we like the seasonal menu that features unique and gourmet preparations as well as traditional favorites. All eaters will be happy here.

Dinner's menu is organized according to "hot" and "cold". All dishes are meant to be shared, but you could easily order 1-3 just for yourself! Examples from a recent menu of cold dishes include snapper crudo, tuna poke, grilled broccoli with meyer lemon, almond and green goddess dressing, shishito, watermelon and lump crab (truly beautiful), and a seared tuna salad. Hot dishes could be oyster po'boy, crab cake, wild Alaskan salmon, scallops with pickled chanterelles, lobster roll and a Korean bbq octopus over bok choy. Every dish is super fresh and well constructed. Non fish fans can order lamb, duck or sirloin. The lunch menu is very similar with a few sandwich options thrown in.

If you opt for the weekend brunch, you can count on both sweet and savory options. Buttermilk pancakes and French toast make an appearance along with omelettes, a sausage and egg breakfast sandwich, shrimp and grits, seared tuna salad, crab benedict, vegetarian burrito, lobster burrito, and chilaquiles.

Open for lunch Tues-Fri starting at 11:30a; Weekend brunch 10a-2:30p; Dinner nightly
