You will find simple and elegant table settings at Colt & Alison. They are fitting for an upscale steakhouse, where juicy cuts are the focus. Tables are dressed in white linens, and each place setting features a matching napkin folded into layered rectangles. Silver flatware is placed on each side of the napkin. A small white plate sits on the far left, and a butter knife lays across it horizontally. On the right, crystal stemware is ready to hold water and wine.
Off to the side of the table, a short, silver, bulbous vase carries a red rose. Silver salt and pepper shakers are there along with a small lamp — with a white shade, wood neck and silver base — that gives off a soft, dim light. Surrounding the tables is a mix of burgundy and muted gold high-backed wooden chairs, banquettes and studded leather armchairs. The palette adds warmth at the Sea Island restaurant, though that tender filet mignon may be all the warmth you need.
