With a streetside patio (closed due to climate) and a generic-looking ambiance, one's anticipations were understandly low upon entry. A last-minute reservation guaranteed a comfy booth seat within seconds of our arrival.
Components of the colossal dish included "Steamed Island mussels and soft shell clams, 1.25 lb lobster, shrimp, snow crab cluster, baby red potatoes, corn on the cob, herb butter, chimchurri, and arugula." Market Price on the day of our visit was eighty-five dollars. The seafood compilation was intended to fill a party of two generously (or up to three people with minimal appetites), so this was, in fact, the more economic option considering the prices of individual plates on the menu.
Laying the foundation were chunks of local potatoes and segments of corn on the cob; they bathed in a delicious broth that only served to compliment the ingredients' existing qualities. Sweet kernels were enhanced with a light dusting of sea salt and demure garlic, while potato chunks had been blanched to precisely the ideal consistency. Leaves of fresh arugula had been fitted in between these elements, flirting with the surface of the alluring broth.
