Now called the Restaurant at the Gould Hotel, my husband and I stopped in on a rainy Wednesday evening. We are new to the area, knew nothing about the place, so thought we'd give it a try. What a nice surprise! The bar to the right of the main entrance door was full and lively with customers. The restaurant is to the left of the door, far enough away to have a quiet dinner. I was very quiet....when we arrived (7pm) there were only 4 other diners. Great staff....attentive but not overwhelming. We started with two salads, both delicious: a pear/brie/spinach salad....wish there was a little more pear and a few croutons or candied walnuts to off-set the 'soft' components for the cheese and pear; the strawberry/rhubarb salad. There was a sushi-grade tuna appetizer special with noodles that didn't last long....FABULOUS! Tuna was very tender. I had the fried chicken and would have it again in an heart beat! Perfectly fried, crunchy chicken breasts were not dried out....still very moist served on top of mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus all with a cream sauce with bacon and roasted red peppers. YUM!! My husband said I out ordered him, even though his duck with a pineapple sauce, coconut rice and perfectly steamed vegetables, was just delicious. The duck was cooked perfectly. The rice was a little to sweet paired with the pineapple glaze/sauce on the duck, but still good....reminiscent of a dessert rice in a Thai restaurant. We ate every bit, so no room for dessert.....next time! Most people in the restaurant (maybe 12 by the time we left) seemed to be staying at the hotel. More local people need to give this place a try in order to keep it going.
