THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Indigo Restaurant Review

: Everything about Indigo, from the dramatically sinuous sconces along the dining room's celadon walls to the crisp and juicy soft-shell crabs and their citrus beurre blanc, shows meticulous attention to detail. The view from the wide terrace takes in a lovely garden and a 1790s cottage that is now a bed-and-breakfast but once was the center of an indigo plantation (hence the restaurant's name). Burnished gilt and teak chairs help set the mood for the menu, a collection of creative dishes filled with the robust flavors that echo the best New Orleans traditions. Little Neck clams poached in a cream-tinged broth with white wine and fennel are luscious. A tender veal rib-eye luxuriates in a sauce of its own rich juices and morels. A truffled crab salad accompanies pan-roasted drum fish garnished with a sauté of corn and mushrooms. Scallop and shrimp, their edges seared to a deep brown, arrive with roasted garlic and mushrooms. Desserts are short on fussiness and long on seductive flavors, as in a near-perfect molten-chocolate cake alongside a silky chocolate ganache. The service at Indigo has progressed to a quiet, courteous efficiency, and the moderate-sized wine list, which contains some off-the-beaten-track vintages, is anything but hum-drum.
