Chef Jackie likes to please, with a little bit of sweetness and big-hearted portions, but always with an eye to what's healthy. She's big into dishes that go light on carbs and gluten but focus in on gutsy veggies and fresh gulf fish. She respects her classical roots (steak Diane, an escargot napoleon) but delights in comfort foods as well (fried green tomato BLT, shrimp and grits). Although this comfy, neighborhood, seafood-heavy, mid-priced New American concept feels intimate and welcoming, the restaurant is fairly large with a big, canopied sidewalk space and two main dining rooms, one tending to be given over to larger parties. Servers are personable and know the menu cold, and the wine list is moderately priced; with recently added Martuni Lounge serving natural vodkas.
Hours: 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Mon.-Sat., Jazz Brunch from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Sun., with mimosas, lobster bisque, grouper benedict, and traditional breakfast items.
