"The latest evolution of our menu still focuses on seafood," Cantrell says. But new additions include prime and dry-aged steaks and, on the other end of the scale, more vegetarian-friendly options. The new dishes include appetizers such as blue crab bisque infused with fennel and celery root and crowned with an aged Vermont cheddar crisp, as well as main courses like those pictured: pan-roasted Florida grouper on asparagus-bacon succotash, and a 16-ounce bone-in cowboy rib eye atop shiitake ragout. New prices range from $16 to $42.
