The Tobacco Company Restaurant Restaurant Review: With its sparkling brass and glass, this restaurant that served as a nineteenth-century tobacco warehouse surely bespeaks Southern elegance today while the menu itself is almost as compelling as the setting. You’ll find such beefy temptations as prime rib (the second serving on the house if you know to ask) and New York strip with rustic hash browns, as well as grilled lamb chops, pastas and seafood including broiled orange roughy with a black bean cake. Less formal dishes include burgers on the lunch menu. Although the bar is outfitted with the requisite TV, you may be much more interested in the passing scene and the glam setting than with the game. After dinner on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, those 21 and up can head to the Tobacco Company Club to dance the night away to progressive music (no entry fee with dinner receipt, otherwise $5 cover). And while classic martinis seem de rigueur, don’t miss the creative line-up of craft cocktails.
