I've been to this place a half dozen times and it is the real deal. The food is fantastic and the beer selection kicks major ass. So far I've enjoyed:

grass fed beef jerky (da bomb!)
bread in a bag w/ bone marrow butter
buffalo sweetbreads
fried clams (with bellies!!) w/ fried lemon rind & thin sliced cornichon (mimics the flavor of tartar sauce w/o the mayo which is pretty frickin sweet)
frisee salad w/ lamb lardons, toasted almonds, and fried egg
Korobuta pork shank
Shrimp & grits
Chicken thighs w/ dumplings (had this last night and it was awesome)

The place is small and has a few high tops and a bunch of tables. The bar actually came from the old Press Room on Miami Beach. Bartenders and servers are very good and really nice. Kitchen can be a little slow when it gets packed but it's improved on every visit. Strongly recommend checking it out. I rarely ate in the Gables before they opened.
