Elegant urban setting for a menu that is kind of international and kind of Caribbean. The chocolate chicken wings are spicy, slightly hot and not too sweet. For an entree the jerk chicken with pineapple and mango salsa and side of rice and black beans will have you cleaning your plate.
The frozen pops have almost the same taste (but better quality) of a smoothie. If you're looking for a dessert-type pop that's more filling, you can find those on the menu as well. Add to the fact that they're made with fresh fruits — the King buys organic and local fruit when possible — and you have an independent upstart with a sustainable mind-set.
Floataway is a place you come to be chill. To feel chill. To eat chill. With the walls painted vibrant blue, assorted glass bottles lining the bar and vintage fire-engine-red accents, it's as if owners Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison splashed the essence of hipster indie craft aesthetic over the place and then toned it down just enough to feel fancy. This approach to the decor is similar to the way the kitchen approaches food: ramp up ingredient quality, then tone down dishes to the absolute essentials. The restaurant excels at a seemingly forgotten aspect of service, and that’s pacing. Meals at Floataway are languid affairs — never slow, but gloriously unrushed.
Much of the Shed at Glenwood's menu reads like a kind of International House of Bistro Classics. Depending on your mood, you could hit Britain with a no-nonsense preparation of fish and chips; France with a creamy, truffley version of moules frite; or Germany with a tender, juicy and comforting pork schnitzel topped with melting leeks.

The paneled Southern seafood shack decor works (think wooden booths, long tables, a horseshoe bar). And so does the food. Shrimp, crab cakes, oysters, crab legs, clams, scallops, mussels, catfish and po'boys are all fresh and tasty. All in all, Six Feet Under fills the gap of the disappearing inexpensive seafood shack.
