The cheesy Vegas-style signage that announces Alias’s presence on Clinton Street belies the elegant, seasonally inspired eats found within. Roasted hen-of-the-woods mushrooms are served with a runny egg, okra and creamy Anson Mills grits, while delicate striped bass—roasted with swiss chard and scallions—is topped with local radishes and drizzled with shrimp jus. The magic extends to the vibe: The modern-diner, glass-walled space attracts die-hard regulars, and the waitstaff is kind and gracious, even at the apex of Saturday-night fever.
