Raintree, housed in an 1879 Key West-style Victorian house, is a definite special occasion spot. It has a menu (and, oftentimes, a clientele) to match, with signatures like crisp roasted half duckling in a raspberry demi-glace, beef Wellington, and a rack of New Zealand lamb. But it's not all textbook cuisine. Some necessary modernizing has been done to the menu, which now also ticks off everything from Kobe and black bean burgers to grilled pita bread pizzas and ahi tuna carpaccio. A tiki torch-lit outdoor patio with a fire pit makes for a magnificent setting, especially at night, or during the popular Sunday brunches. Indoor dining is a bit more, shall we say, antebellum—or, in less historic terms, outdated. Sit outside when you can.
