600 Fleming Street
AWARD: Golden Spoon
Romantic dining for 50 in cozy 1884 hotel grandeur. Top-dollar elegance in the tropics for high heels, not flip-flops. Fresh catches of shrimp, yellowtail and spiny lobster are regulars with a spectrum of accents. The Marquesa can sing Dixie with shrimp and grits or pimiento cheese on baked oysters and do rich traditionals like a root vegetable gratin with beef tenderloin.
