717 South serves authentic Italian dishes from the kitchens of Italy to exotic seafood from the Pacific Rim, including their famous Miso and Sake-cured catch of the day. Also featured is an extensive wine list (over 200 wines by the bottle), martini's and specialty drinks from all parts of the world. Michael Stewart, a local native, is the owner, and Korean-born chef Robert Masson displays a sure mastery of all ports and parts of the world. Set within 1920's art deco paintings, wood trim, high ceilings, and an open kitchen, the restaurant welcomes each patron.
