My husband and I ate dinner here on the last night of our vacation and I could not have asked for a more perfect meal. There aren't enough words - delicious, creative, balanced, artistic... Those would be a start. We ended up choosing the 8 course tasting menu and in 8 courses I could not find fault with a single bite. (And I happily admit I ate every bite.) The chef was skillfully able to create dishes that incorporated a variety of techniques and that were beautiful to look at but allowed flavor to remain the star of each plate. There was not a single garnish or element that was out of place or that did not make sense. Each dish was balanced in flavor and texture. While some of the dishes might be on the more adventuresome side for the general public, those who are less adventurous will still find plenty to choose from. And dessert can be a show on its own - save room for the "truth or dare" dessert if you order a la carte. We happily watched the "show" that was presented to our neighbors and I was a little bit jealous (until I got my own version and then some)!
The atmosphere is more on the casual side - I think that is a bonus. While I would not show up in sweats you also don't need to be in your Easter Sunday best. The restaurant is small so make reservations in advance. We were there in the off season (well, 3 hours ago - it is the end of April) and so it was no problem to make reservations same day but if I lived in the area, you all would be fighting me for a table every week. The service was perfect as well: attentive but not in your face.
I like food - all food. Some of the best food I've eaten have come from street carts and food trucks as well as some of the finest of the fine dining establishments. I will tell you that at least two or three of the dishes I ate this evening are some of the top dishes I have eaten, ever. And possibly my view is skewed because this vacation was overwhelmed with overly dressed lobster rolls and potato salads dished with an ice cream scoop, a la elementary school cafeteria style, but I don't think so... And if nothing else will convince you, I rarely take the time to write reviews! Simply put - eat here.
