The menu (created by Executive Chef Michael Reardon) has a mix of light land and sea dishes and we don't mean light as in small. Everything just tastes light and simple in a carefree, fresh yet organic sort of way with just a touch of fancy (yeah, we know. We're not food writers.)
We started off with the watermelon salad with goat cheese, avocado and arugula ($14) before moving onto the Maine Lobster ($29) which is already taken apart for you (darnit, we wanted to wear a bib!) and served with asparagus and a light version of mashed potatoes.
The menu also offers a prixe fixe setting for $49 which has either orata or a steak for your main entree as well as a choice of an appetizer and dessert. Rounding out the dinner options is a sushi menu with some sashimi and specialty rolls.
Dessert is where things really shine. Our table devoured a pina colada sherbet which tasted exactly like a pina colada drink--and thus conjured up memories of suntan lotion--and a raspberry tart which was perfectly sweet and soft.
Looking around at the rest of the diners, they skewed a little older--50s/60s and most looked like locals. We also saw Marg Helgenberger from CSI who was with her teenaged son and another couple. She was fab-looking and very well-preserved, but a little sad too. Or maybe that's just the side effects of Botox?
All in all, the dinner was a little bit more expensive that we or our dining partners had realized. Wine and drinks are ridiculously marked up, even the non-alcoholic ones--$5.25 for a coke, anyone? But the food was spot-on. So come for the views, try the food but be careful about your drink choices.
