    Try the Pommes Anna from our 100 Best list: This unassuming potato side dish—crispy and golden on top, tender and gratinlike underneath—makes you remember why you love seasoned chef Jason Paskewitz.

    From the wood-grilled octopus with charred greens to the spit-roasted half duck, to the goopy blondie brownie dessert, chef Jason Paskewitz never bores us.

    We think you should start with bubbles, enjoy some lobster risotto, sink your teeth into prime rib from the rotisserie and finish it off with a delicious slice of cheesecake!

    Got to try the Rustic version of the Moscow Mule. Delicious! Prime Rib ain't that bad either.

    The Corn Brûlée is AMAZING! A must have side dish. The blonde brownie is the perfect dessert too!

    Rotisserie chicken, grilled octopus, cookies and milkshakes. Joyless people might complain about a lack of innovation. Let them go to Moto. Read more

    There's a wood-burning grill on the premises, which turns out a nicely charred octopus appetizer (with wilted greens, tomato confit and olives) and takes care of the menu's two steaks.

    Luscious blueberry pie, presented in a cast-iron dish. Perched above the lattice-crust top are a scoop of blueberry gelato and Chantilly cream; beneath are 2 inches of piping-hot blueberry filling. Read more

    Le Pastèque! French for "the watermelon". And also our drink special for the night! Fresh watermelon juice, tequila, lemon, honey and bitters.

    Reminds me of a typical farm to table style restaurant you'd find in Birmingham, AL or San Francisco, CA. This has my seal of approval. Wow.
