THE SOUTHERN STEAK & OYSTER
This modern bistro invites the click of heels on its black and white tile floor for business lunches, gussied-up brunches, or date nights. But with an oval-shaped bar manned with oyster shuckers, as the centerpiece, it also beckons a casual mix of downtown office workers and tourists. A creative menu helps keep it feel Southern, and choices beyond the typical country fare keep it on this list. Look far south to the Dominican-braised pork with mango pico on sweet potato grit cake or the Orleans Parish barbecue shrimp with baguette for sopping as well as classics like the Nudie Suit, which is a tailored steak.
