I have business people coming to town next week.   They requested seafood for dinner.  Any ideas?   (preferably not Jake's - - too cliche).

Here are two new places for your consideration:
I've only been to Jacqueline. I enjoyed it.

go to Headwaters.


If you need a quieter space, South Park is serviceable.

Slam dunk. the best is Roe but tough for large groups and usually you need a reservation well ahead of time.

Roe for sure but I do not think they would be the best for large groups. It is generally a quiet and intimate experience there. I do not know about a large loud group gabbing business, you know? Not saying your group is loud or gabby. 


I think Jacqueline is a great idea. Really fantastic seafood. Still a small space but bigger than Roe and they had a large party (10?) in the center of the room last time I was there. 


Headwaters seems more "group business dinner" appropriate because it is downtown and in a large space, etc. but I personally like Jacqueline's food better. (Headwaters has great cold/raw bar stuff, but the cooked stuff and main entrees are kinda boring/predictable).
