I picked this place based on the reviews I read online. I had to make a reservation since I dined with a couple of my co-workers. I ordered the prime NY strip, which comes already sliced. The steak was ok, I would say a bit bland and honestly I was expecting something more special because of the price tag. The Yukon potatoes were very good. Service was very good overall.

I finally scored a reservation here, or so I thought. Checked in at the front desk and then realized I made it for 4 weeks in the future. ???? Luckily they had a free table and sat us at a well spaced two top. Our server, Tessa, promptly greeted us and walked us through the menu. The first round of cocktails were great. We led the meal with tomato pie, smoked grouper tartines, and burata peach salad. Each one outstanding, but a special note to the peach vinegar on the burata - simply amazing! Next on to the main. We split a 45 day dry aged NY strip. This is not a easy cut of meat to prepare and this one was delivered to the table perfectly. Order it mid rare (as suggested by our server) and enjoy! We paired it up with pink eyed peas and okra. I couldn't figure out the wine selection since it only seemed to list glasses and magnums, so I order a few glasses from the gem box and our server brought us a bottle instead, which was a good move on her part. Later in the meal, I see

At Helen, creativity abounds. I’ve posted here a photo of their summer temperance drinks, accompanied by Helen’s otherworldly “angel biscuits”. Both are highly recommended. This is our second visit in as many months, and the menu is ever-evolving. Plates are easily shared family style, which is also something we’d recommend as you’ll want to try everything that is set down at the table. Incredibly kind and knowledgeable waitstaff, bartenders and hosts. This is now our staple date spot. Don’t miss out!
