It is warm and elegant inside, and the food is out of this world. The owner was on "Beat Bobby Flay" and won! The bar area is my favorite. Very comfortable and low key with great service.

We typically sit at the bar for dinner, but the dining room is nice too. Josh, the bartender is hands down the best bar tender I have ever encountered, seriously! The food is always spot on. Small plates are filling and regular meals will satisfy.

I am sure they would allow you in. But it is a very upscale restaurant with prices that match. If it is your nature, you might not be comfortable.

That's a great question - I believe they still own The Perfect Caper! It recently won an award from The Florida Trend Magazine's Golden Spoon...AND has been awarded this seven times!!
