THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED POSH Restaurant Review: Transforming Seeger's into POSH, owner Tom Catherall has tried to warm up this minimalist space by adding art and music---two Seeger prohibitions. Catherall's favorite go-to guy, Ian Winslade, from Shout, launched the place from the kitchen perspective but now has returned to Shout. Executive chef de cuisine Mel Toledo oversees a menu that changes frequently, the seasons rule and the region makes its contribution. Catherall's and Winslade's influence from Scotland and England respectively may be seen in such dishes as the sticky toffee pudding, about as down home as you can get. Seasonally driven, the menu will feature cold soups in summer and warm soups, perhaps truffle perfumed, in the fall, along with game. Portions are moderate, except for the 19-ounce rib-eye steak, in case a Giant Jack appetite shows up. For dessert, an almond tuile basket holds house-made ice cream, such as yogurt and honey, with fresh fruits. Presentations tend to be quite structured and formalized, even though rooted in a certain earthiness. The wine list skitters from pillar to post, with everything from various regions gathered into a single listing, while "Other Reds" becomes almost entirely Italian. A high-end section focused on vintages from the ’90s includes two first growths. Lunch is offered seasonally, so don't count on it in summer. Call ahead and be sure. Brunch has its own personality, showcasing more regional specialties such as Georgia shrimp and grits, and a quite reasonable price scheme.
