SHO Shaun Hergatt opens Monday in the financial districts Setai condos, and at 12,500 square feet, its probably one of the splashiest spaces weve seen since At Vermilion and Pranna. The front bar and lounge is appointed with mother-of-pearl surfaces, silk-covered walls, and an infinity-edge pool; then, past a wine gallery (there are 550 bottles on offer), there are three private dining rooms (including a tasting room, where the walls double as wine cases) as well the main dining room, or rather dining cube, which has a glass-walled open kitchen. The eponymous chef is a Ritz-Carlton veteran coming from the Setais Miami location, and hes offering whats described as a modern French-accented menu that also draws on Asian ingredients and is influenced by his native Australia. Below, a closer look at the space and a link to the menu.
