Stone Posted June 22, 2005 Share Posted June 22, 2005 I had a pretty good dinner there last night. We were seated up on the balcony, which was a little lonely, but the service didn't suffer at all. Four of us started with the trio of seafood, crabcakes and the zucchini flowers. The trio was very good. Lobster salad with avacado, crab with mango and a shrimp cocktail. The lobster and crab were very good and fresh. Nicely spiced, but nothing overwhelming. The shrimp were also good and managed to taste like something more than bubblewrap plastic. I wish they had warned us that there would only be two shrimp for the four of us. The zucchini flowers were excellent. Stuffed with pulled pork and fried very crisp. The crabcake, topped with chopped olives and roasted red peppers, tasted great but was a little mushy. My lambchops were a little disappointing. The woman at the table next to me was served two large chops, perfectly rare. Mine were too small, and it was difficult to get a nice bite of meat that wasn't also filled with the rim of fat. The rest of my table had the snapper, which was excellent. Pan fried crisp and topped with an avocado salso. The desserts, a pineapple carrot cake and "eclairs", that were dowels of eclair filled with cream over which caramel was poured, were uninspiring. All in all a pretty good night. The bill was about $270, with six glasses of wine and a martini. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
