Locally sourced southern chow with a bangin’ rooftop view
The hype is real at this modern American restaurant in the Five Points district of Riverside. Fresh locally sourced ingredients are a staple here, but the rooftop bar and lounge is where the magic happens. Sky-high views of Downtown and the St. Johns River keep the happy hour crowd coming back at five o’clock before the sun sets. Plus, the bar menu is a gift from the gods. Try the Chicken Fried Sweet Bread Nuggets or the Florida Lobster Roll, and wash them down with a variety of artisan blends from behind the bar. We like the Dusty Boot (Buffalo Trace bourbon, simple syrup, lemon and lime juices, Jerry Thomas bitters, with a smoked sea salt and cracked black pepper rim).
French inspired. Southern influenced. Locally driven.
Take a slice of Paris and put it in Jacksonville, and voila—you have Orsay. The swanky French-American bistro crafts a range of cocktails as scintillating as the aura itself. Slide straight to the bar for a quaint aperitif or to fancy something shaken and refreshing or stirred and assertive. Order the Just Trust Me and let the bartender blend a specialty cocktail that’ll sing to your soul.
