Hip, laid-back and a model of design, this indoor-outdoor space is at once many things. Inside, relax with a creative cocktail and bowl of lemon-Dijon popcorn while contemplating the entryway’s reflective blue-glass ceiling, the two-way fireplace and that nest of driftwood hanging from an upper floor. If in the mood for a clubbier scene, head to the rooftop cabana, complete with wet bars, TVs and self-service beer taps—just remember to reserve well in advance.
The menu presents dishes from around the globe, such as “ribbons” of bigeye tuna tangled with sliced avocado and much more in a flavorful makrut lime- and soy-marinade. Of course, those plump and tender duck meatballs are an instant classic, set over cheesy grits and smothered in tomato sauce.- MICHELIN guide inspectors
