New in 2018, Curio is a reboot of a space that was most recently a Chase bank. You’d never know it from the classically pretty decor and enticing wraparound patio upstairs—a hard spot to leave on a nice day. Creole cuisine also gets a reboot here: It’s an accent to American bistro cuisine rather than the main event. So local oysters show up in a chopped Cobb salad and a BL(O)T, but you can also get a very good ‘ole American burger. Appetizers that shine include shrimp boulettes (breaded and fried golf-ball-size balls with buttermilk-chive dipping sauce) and a generous plate of delicate tuna and scallop carpaccio. Short ribs are sweetly glazed with cane syrup and accompanied by cheesy grits, while grilled salmon with lemon-shallot vinaigrette is a delightful antidote to heavier fare. Allow room for the luscious café au lait crème brulee with mini donuts.
