In the former Icon location. In a November 2009 City Scene review, Fletcher Harvey gave high marks to Gulf shrimp and butternut squash bisque, Caesar salad, bone-in Hereford filet, espresso creme brulee. Not so good were pan-roasted Gulf Coast scallops with black tiger shrimp risotto, two large-but-tough shrimp served with the bisque, and "ominous" mussels that were served with otherwise well-received Destin flounder. "Truly a work-in-progress," Harvey noted that Century is operated by executive chefs from Virginia College's Culinard Institute -- but this is not a teaching restaurant.
