THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES The Cypress Room Restaurant Review

: The Cypress Room is intended to evoke gilded age fine dining with deer heads on the walls and starched white tablecloths on tables that nearly touch. While it is the concept of Michael Schwartz, chef de cuisine Roel Alcudia turns out creative, refined fare using quality ingredients. Start with royal red Cape Canaveral shrimp in coconut milk with lime and puffed rice, or braised bone marrow with preserved lemon. Entrées include rabbit and spinach tortellini and pork en crepinette (cooked in caul fat) plus rotisserie meats and whole grilled fish for two. Five-course tasting menus for $95 ($155 with paired wines) include dishes not on the regular menu, and are a relative bargain. Wine director Eric Larkee does skilled pairings from a wine list mixing boutique and classic European selections. The house-made Nicknack apéritif mixes Death’s Door gin, Ardbeg Scotch, damson plum and spices. Tiny homemade pastries come with checks to allay the sticker shock.
