The walls in the bar area are made of reclaimed basketball court flooring, and mesh lockers contain pairs of his shoes. The pieces of memorabilia are from Jordan's personal collection.
Note to readers: The restaurant just announced a Signature Seafood Weekend on Nov. 23 and 24. Fresh oysters on the half-shell with pink peppercorn mignonette; half or full order ($18 or $36). Crispy calamari from Rhode Island, another starter, will come with fried lemon, spicy marinara and a creamy horseradish sauce on the side ($14). The crab cake with Meyer lemon aioli rounds out the starters ($22). The weekend’s two starring entrees are Faroe Island salmon ($27), served with poblano creamed corn, and seared ahi tuna ($34), which layers the flavors of togarashi, ponzu and sweet soy and comes with soba noodle slaw.
