Chef John Miller and his team of culinary crafters at D'Canters dish out fresh fish, seafood, and steaks that evoke the flavors of New Orleans and work in concert with a carefully chosen wine list. Dining duos unsheathe their forks to spear fronds from a classic caesar or mixed-greens salad, which juggles pears, roma tomatoes, and candied pecans beneath a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette and a pattering of crowd applause. Palettes pick from seven upscale entrees, such as the creole seafood gumbo laden with jumbo shrimp, crab, and andouille sausage, or the grilled-to-order jalapeño-lime salmon buoyed by rice pilaf and asparagus. Spoon mouthfuls of truffle whipped potatoes flanking an oven-roasted breast of shiitake-crusted chicken glazed with a madeira-wine sauce, and drum out rhythms on the fried green tomatoes served with the kurobuta pork loin to keep a beat as the tender pork sizzles beneath Kahlua barbecue sauce.
Diners can raise glasses of house cabernet or chardonnay and toast to their chef, their meals, or the confused man dressed like Spider-Man standing in the corner of the romantic, intimate dining room. Deep brown booths cling to one side of the restaurant, and a black bar lined with high-top chairs sewn with orange cushions stretches across the other.
The award-winning cuisine at D'Canters' features contemporary American dishes with a focus on steaks and seafood. Sunday champagne brunches, host lemon-blueberry pancakes, and dinnertime starters include jalapeño hush puppies.

On weekends can guests can revel in fresh oyster and duck menu selections. A full service bar and more than 40 wines by the glass can complement each feast, which unfold amidst the soothing tones of live music every Friday and Saturday.
