Charred tar

Salmon crudo


Salmon Benedict

**** (4 stars)

Beautiful space with high ceilings and lots of light. All hard surfaces, so it will get noisy.

First visit for a Saturday brunch. There is an extensive buffet, but we ordered off the menu.

The skillet we had was good, but the highlight of the meal was the Benedict. We selected the salmon, and it was an amazing blend of ingredients. The sauce was not a standard Hollandaise as is usual on a Benedict, but rather something much more citrusy and a perfect accompaniment to the salmon and the beautifully cooked eggs. Wedge potatoes had a strong herb flavor but were unremarkable. Service was attentive.

Second visit for dinner. Service was adequate but not polished. We had four small plates. I didn’t care too much for the rather conventional shrimp ceviche or the salmon crudo, but my wife liked them well enough. I did like the Charred-Tar, a steak tartare preparation with a char on it. Also the mussels were inventive, served in a spicy tomato and ferego broth. My wife thought both were too rich.
