95 Cordova Restaurant Review: It's impossible to separate dinner at 95 Cordova from the experience of walking into the historic Casa Monica Hotel. The intimate, ornate property---built at the behest of railroad magnate Henry Flagler in 1888---combines the fancifully carved arches, fountains and tiles of Moorish architecture with the jewel-toned, overstuffed trappings of the Victorian era. And amidst the beaded curtains and fabric-draped ceilings sits a restaurant that boasts one of the trendiest, most eclectic menus on the First Coast. Asian spices, condiments and cooking techniques are liberally-sprinkled over a bill of fare featuring Pacific Rim, French, Italian and American favorites. Don't miss the lobster soup, which, unlike the bland bisques served at most restaurants, is a spicy, Thai-inspired delight filled with thin cellophane noodles, mushrooms and slices of lobster meat. Whether you succumb to the pan-seared sea bass or velvet-textured filet mignon, your entrée will likely come with a hearty rustic side of chunky mashed potatoes or an ethereally rich helping of wild mushroom risotto. But save room for dessert; the Zen Sum tiramisu is to die for.
