A bar food menu will be available all day, offering casual dining with options from snacks and sharing plates through to more substantial dishes including Po' Boys and Clubs, Burgers and Salads. All-day desserts will include a peanut butter, jelly and chocolate sandwich; and cinnamon beignets with chocolate dipping sauce. There'll be a communal table as well as reservable seats too.

Upstairs, the Dining Room menu features a raw bar section with fresh ceviches and tartares. Certain classics remain, such as USDA prime steaks alongside some new dishes such as Missouri-rubbed rack of lamb with Boston beans, and blackened salmon with jambalaya risotto.

The popular weekend brunch returns with some new lighter dishes - such as grilled grapefruit and banana, muscovado, toasted coconut flakes, spiced rum - as well as corned beef hash with béarnaise sauce and the lobster club with chilli mayo.
