The Select, a 1920s-inspired restaurant and bar, features “a range of eclectic entrees and small plates inspired by American and European cuisine,” according to a press release.
The restaurant pays homage to Paris’ Le Select brasserie—a gathering spot for artists and authors including Picasso, Hemingway and Fitzgerald.
Executive chef Matt Rainey’s menu includes daily dinner and late-night small plates “that blur the lines of culinary traditions across Continental Europe and America.”
Inspired by the olive oil regions of Spain, Italy and Southern France, the menu’s offerings include seafood towers including jumbo lump crab, lobster tail, shrimp cocktail, king crab and oysters; Quinoa and Wheat Berries Salad with cauliflower, almonds, cranberries, feta and citrus vinaigrette; market fish with spring peas, artichokes, barigoule jus and potato gnocchi; and a 40-Day Dry Aged 22-ounce Bone-In Ribeye cut to share and served with roasted shallots and natural jus.
Weekend brunch is to come. The restaurant will also host live music nights beginning at the end of dinner hour into the late evening.
A Georgia native, Rainey has overseen kitchens at several Florida restaurants and also worked in Washington, D.C.
The restaurant’s beverage program offers 60 bottles and more than 30 options of wine by the glass, with selections from France, Italy, Australia and America. Also expect to see rotating seasonal cocktails and local beer on draft.
Designed by Smith Hanes Studio, The Select’s space features an “inviting and warm interior mixing intimate seating with classic design elements.” Look for an indoor/outdoor patio enclosed by glass with a terrace. The dining room seats 175 guests and will be available for private and semi-private events.
The Select is open for dinner 5:30-10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 5:30-11 p.m. Friday-Saturday and nightly from 10 p.m.-midnight for late night small plate service.
The Select joins several other restaurants in the City Springs development including Flower Child, Nam Kitchen and Cafe Vendome.
