With its deep red walls, Oriental carpets and eclectic scattering of pillows and low-hanging lamps, in a way the atmosphere of the dining room reflects the mystique and sultriness of a place you might expect to find Jenny Hill. But the formal table settings, equestrian memorabilia and well-dressed staff suggest a more timeless, refined ambience. The dinner menu combines tradition and flair, celebrating classic entrees like the Hot Brown and shrimp and grits, while throwing in options of seafood pot pie or pasta with smoked salmon, just to keep things interesting. . . .
To walk in the door of The Julep Cup is to evidence how much fun the decorating process must have been, starting with the Seahorse Lounge, immediately to the right of the front entrance. Bright seafoam paint and a scattering of eclectic ocean-related memorabilia, including a gigantic mirror with the image of a mermaid smoked in the glass, straight from the auction of a Chinese buffet, enshroud the walls.
