With its Flemish bond brickwork, a painted tin ceiling and refurbished church pews, Sazerac House exudes 19th century charm in keeping with its landmark 1826 building. Narrow mirrors running at eye level facilitate discreet people watching and an ancillary sunroom-dining room possesses a great view of the bustling neighborhood. New Orleans, however, not New York, informs the spicy menu. A peppery jambalaya with three types of meat plus shrimp, and the chili-rubbed pork chops nicely complemented by horseradish mashed potatoes, aren't afraid to make your tongue tingle. Other dishes such as wild Alaskan King salmon or steak and potatoes extend the menu's geographical reach to infinitely milder climes. Weekend brunches reinvent the familiar via Amaretto-tinged French toast, and a corn pancake wrapped around barbecue shrimp.Extra
