THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Ortanique Restaurant Review

: Replicating her original location in Coral Gables, Florida, co-creator/executive chef Cindy Hutson and her team have created a friendly setting for her Caribbean fusion cuisine, with a cozy, comfortable sitting area, a massive bar at the entrance, and a 180-seat sun-colored dining room decorated with plush drapes to soften the rich, dark wood throughout. Her menu utilizes exotic tropical flavors to enhance what she calls cuisine of the sun. Try the roasted garlic-and-lemon Caesar salad with sizzled lemon wontons in a Parmesan tuile, or the steak salad with romaine leaves, grilled Bermuda onions, Maytag blue cheese and Worcestershire vinaigrette, also offered for the weekend brunch. Among favorite dinner specialties is the Caribbean bouillabaisse in a makrut red Thai curry broth with jasmine rice. We like the crab-stuffed salmon with cream-cheese mashed potatoes, asparagus and rum-lobster sauce. Go for the pan-roasted Australian lamb rack in a Shiraz demi-glace with manchego cheese mashed potatoes. The 250-label wine list nicely complements the imaginative fare. Crème brûlée and bananas Foster cheesecake tart are among sublime desserts. A jazz band plays on weekend evenings.
