We live in DC and regularly 'eat around' in DC, NYC and Amsterdam. The Melon is operated by veteran and renowned New Orleans restauranteurs. The food and service compare with nearly any $50 a plate restaurants in any of the above and Chef Micheal does a superior with the local seafood with a New Orleans flare. And given you are on an island that focus on seafood should be expected, yet the steak and filets are superior as well. Now in their new location the facility is arguable the best on the island to boot. The decor is a mix of French country side and New Orleans and Michael's wife Paula is the expert who has choreographed the facility. Son Nat has upped the wine list with the focus on value per bottle not price. All in all I highly recommend the Melon, and if you are lucky enough to meet Micheal as about the unique name. While the below rating system dictates a $$$ price you are going to be getting $$$$ food and service for a $$ price. Oh and I should add one of the BEST brunches available anywhere.
