THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Miro District Food & Drink Restaurant Review: Chef Joe Shaw, who has worked wonders in the past at local restaurants Watermark and The Standard, is now overseeing an ongoing ode to French and Southern American comfort foods at this restaurant on the ground floor of a modern condo tower in Midtown. You can go as simple as moules frites with a Belgian ale (and indeed you should), or you can go big with a grande plateau of lobster, shrimp and oysters. Obviously, seafood is taken seriously here, but you can also order terrestrial tastes such as lamb osso buco with mint risotto. In the tradition of the city’s meat-and-three restaurants, there’s a recurring special every day of the week: Monday is chicken potpie; Thursday is veal meatloaf; Friday is shrimp Creole and so on. For dessert, you must try the New Orleans-style bread pudding with whiskey sauce, but if for some reason that doesn’t satisfy, there’s buttermilk panna cotta with fresh strawberries, assuming the season is right. The wine list is brief and tilts a little toward new-world wines, but the selections are first-rate without being unaffordable.
