Not every restaurant reaches its peak potential when it opens; sometimes they have to evolve a bit to find themselves. Such is the case with Poitín, which started out serving an eclectic menu of globally inspired dishes but has recently refocused on Southern cuisine centered around executive chef Dominick Lee’s roots in New Orleans. While the hummus and pastrami will be missed, their replacements — dishes like collard green risotto, beef cheek with spoonbread, and blue crab with smoked green onion and avocado — have a cohesiveness that their predecessors lacked. A strong front of house team, anchored by beverage director Sarah Cuneo (Anvil, The Pastry War) and wine director Chris Fleischman (Riel, Pax Americana), help ensure the dining experience is as hospitable as Lee’s food is delicious.
