To begin our meal, our knowledgeable and accommodating server, brought us a generous platter of hors d'oeuvres that were specifically created for the seafood
lover. Exquisitely delicious Maryland Crab Cakes were artistically arranged over
a bed of Lakeville Farms Lettuce, Currant Tomatoes and Avocado Vinaigrette.
Made with crabmeat, diced red pepper and crowned with a dollop of
chipotle remoulade, they were some of the best we had ever tasted.

Grilled Jumbo Prawns

The Grilled Jumbo Prawns served next was exceptionally bountiful, served with
Nante Carrots, English Peas, Shrimp Scented Fondue... Also, we tried their
super delicious starter: The Warm Wild Mushrooms, with Goat Cheese
Crouton, Parsley and Tarragon, one of the best mushrooms we have
ever tasted! Do not miss their amazing Mac and Cheese, with
Cheddar, Radiatore Pasta & Cracked Black Pepper.

and placed atop a serving of Cannelini Bean Ragout, Artichoke Confit Salad.

Frissee, Parsley and Cider Dressing.

Grilled Center Cut Swordfish

Our amazing Chef, also sent us the sampler of the Grilled Center Cut
Swordfish, with Lemon Grass, Anson Mills Polenta Frites and
Sorrel, I guess this one was heaven!

For dessert, we tried a specialty of the house; we got a taste of their 3 delectable Berry Crumble Pie, Warm Break Pudding, and Chocolate Truffle Cake definitely takes the sophistication level of the ordinary rendition up a notch. These Thick, rich and creamy, were a was a true classic when garnished with an assortment of fresh berries and homemade vanilla ice cream. We also enjoyed a slice of devastatingly luxuriant pies that promised to have us counting calories for the rest of the week.

Thoroughly satisfied, as we left the table we stopped briefly to chat with some friends who were dining al fresco, looking at our fabulous ocean view “How was your
meal?” one of them asked smilingly, already knowing the answer.

I couldn't help but take advantage of this golden opportunity. I paused
dramatically for a moment, and had a feeling of contemplation.
