Mignonette, an oyster bar and seafood eatery, is like Old Florida meets New Orleans, with its tan leather banquettes, a marble raw bar, and hanging constellations festooned from copper pipes. After a round of oysters and impeccably fresh Alaskan king crab legs, a solid choice is the crab cake. Meanwhile, the "fancy" redfish comes seared and paired with a reduction of sautéed shallots, garlic, and piquillo peppers that are deglazed with brandy, stock, and white wine, plus a touch of butter. The plump fish is well seasoned and an excellent match for the sauce and accompanying al dente haricots verts. If you take money out of the equation, it's easy to see why people would return to enjoy such high-quality, uncontrived food at a restaurant with a distinctly neighborhood vibe.
