THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Downtown Restaurant Review

: High ceilings, modern-colored walls that complement the revolving artwork, and a distinct sense of airiness provided by huge windows help to camouflage one basic fact: this place is always packed. Couples nibbling from the extensive raw oyster bar perch themselves along the zinc counter. Tables of boisterous diners dig into plates of evolving seasonal ingredients and sparklingly fresh fish. To start, sample the house-special fried olives. Halibut pairs with fresh shell beans, chard and heirloom tomatoes, or roasted squash and garlic. The din of conversations and a hardworking open kitchen can be easily lost in the soulful sounds of a live jazz or blues band on most nights.
