Grab a Moscow Mule in a copper mug and then enjoy starters like the Kim Chee Martini, roasted beets, bacon wrapped medjool dates, the renowned Mulligatawny soup or the blue cheese wedge salad. Dinner will mean sugar-spiced salmon, mustard catfish, or go over to the meat side for pork carnitas Yucatan or the pan roasted bone-in breast of free range chicken.
