Local, sustainable food darling located in Midtown.

What we had:

I had the Cobia with sautéed eggplant and potato wafers and a caramelized onion/carrot/cardamom sauce. A very nice piece of perfectly cooked firm fleshed white fish with a delicate sauce and really good side. Cobia is a firm white fish around the dame firmness as Sea Bass, minus the butteriness.

My DH had the pork loin with applewood smoked bacon and peas. The pork had a great taste and the dish was well balanced.

We also split a side of really complex and deeply satisfying Mac & cheese.

To drink, I had The Flapper--an interesting and complex pink cocktail with hints of lemon, cardamom and blueberry.

My DH had a Monk In The Trunk--one of his favorite brews. From a small brewery in Jupiter.


The decor is beautiful and... You guessed it, sustainable, with large ribs of smooth curved wood lining the walls--it's almost like eating in the belly of a whale. The almost-wicker silver globules hanging from the ceiling almost look like bubbles, reinforcing the land to sea theme.


Attentive and knowledgable.

Overall impressions:

Sometimes the buzz surrounding new restaurants, here at a fever-pitch because of the zeitgeist-is warranted, sometimes not. I'm happy to say that in this case it certainly is and this was the first trip of many.
