Restaurateur Paco Vargas (owner of Rudy & Paco) has done it again. This newest addition to Postoffice Street serves fresh seafood and Prime and wagyu steaks in an elegant, contemporary setting that features an open kitchen. The fried green tomatoes topped with boulders of jumbo lump crab and the lobster bisque share the spotlight for favorite starters, perfect preludes to any one of the steaks. Do save some room, though, for the Paco Dome, a chocolate dome that hides chocolate coffee cake topped with cinnamon ice cream until the waiter melts the said dome with hot fudge. The service is superb, as one can expect with Paco at the wheel. Behind the 200-bottle glass wine wall is Bar 21, which offers a lighter menu during happy hour.
