Mr. White serves Southern food in a space that looks like the ground floor of a mansion in New Orleans. Along with a small bar up front, there’s a dining room with plush seats and a fireplace, and a raw bar in the back. The menu has some Cajun-Creole options like jambalaya and char-grilled oysters, as well some other entrees like smoked duck and beef brisket.
