Star Fish

This bright, ocean-themed space is welcoming whatever the season, though in cooler weather, downing a couple of the inventive martinis proves warming indeed. The Starfish, with Ford’s gin, extra-dry vermouth, and lemon zest, paired perfectly with a bowl of sautéed blue crab claws soaking in butter and slivers of fiery Fresno pepper; the H-Town Tini, dirty to its core with Spanish olive brine, worked with lightly fried oysters drizzled with a creamy Cajun rémoulade. Sweet diver scallops followed, interspersed with slices of ruby red grapefruit and deep-fried avocado (better in concept than reality, but the scallops were perfectly pan seared). The “Angry” Spaghettini, with Spanish anchovy and red chiles, could have been a bit angrier, but a sprinkle of salt brought it roaring back to life.
