The small 1832 cottage, next to the Ace, with old-meets-new appeal: a neon green sign alongside slightly askew window fittings. The restaurant is the project, in part, of brothers Alex and Miles Pincus, the native New Orleanians and sailors behind Grand Banks, Pilot, and Island Oyster. Alex Pincus is an architect as well as a restauranteur, and called on his sailing trips with his brother along the Gulf Coast to infuse the interiors with seafaring appeal.

At their family farmhouse in the south of France, actors Amanda Pays and Corbin Bernsen found their outdoor breakfast table at a flea market and the chairs and the chairs came from a wicker shop in La Brisbal, Spain, for €30 ($35.79) each.
The table tops are made of Spotted Gum laminate tops in Teal from Laminex. Lockhart powder-coated the bases in Dulux Denim Blue. On each table are Duralex Gigogne Tumblers and Peugeot 5-Inch Pepper Mills.
Lockhart had Michael Thonet Era Chairs custom colored in Clay, a shade from her own paint collaboration with Drikolor. The upholstered seat pads are done in Sunbrella Tresco Brick to match the banquettes.
