Soho House alum Paul Gerard—who spent 15 years cooking in New Orleans—brings a Southern touch to this 60-seat brasserie. The menu is composed of rich bites like baked oysters and deep-fried jambalaya balls served with dirty gravy. Nineteenth-century lanterns salvaged from old hearses and a floor-to-ceiling image of a scantily clad dame holding a steak lend the room a racy edge.
