It has won nearly every award it is possible to win in Florida. Foodies and critics go on about the intimate dining room draped, tent-like, with silk; the wine list's exceptional breadth; and the playful French/Floribbean cuisine with sly Pacific Rim accents. One can put on the dog and dine in the main dining room, or shake the sand out of the old flip-flops and grab a seat on the casual cafe side (where you can still order from the splurgier side's menu, like classic rack of lamb with a textbook port demi-glace).
