A converted filling station is the showcase for Mark Bliss’s distinctive—and popular—American cooking (don’t waltz in without reservations). Appetizers include his signature chicken-fried-oyster sliders, a must, and memorable sweetbreads with corn purée and lemon butter. We also blissed out on duck breast with duck foie gras and on snapper with shrimp risotto (an inspired creation). We expected the brick walls and hard floor to amplify noise; miracle of miracles, we enjoyed a pleasant, relaxing evening.
