The Claw Bar

Bellasera Resort, 221 9th St. S.

Best New

While seafood towers and plateaus wow us in many restaurants, this place delivers the whole brasserie experience, gleaming with marble, chrome and copper and heaps of well-iced seafood. Hot with traditional trimmings and smart additions like lobster frites, scallops with chipotle corn, jerk shrimp and grits and an osyter-stuffed carpet bagger steak. Gilt-edged “millionaire’s shortbread” and beaucoup bubbly, too.
