We were actually planning on visiting Meg O'Mally or Casbah when we luckily happened upon a open parking space near Dove III. As we walked past my wife glanced at the menu posted outside and immediately called me over to review. Menu looked both interesting and brought back excellent memories of the Dove beach-side. Greeted immediately by hostess Christina and although pretty busy we were seated quickly at a nice .very table with crisp clean white tablecloth. Restaurant interior was clean and very inviting. Server welcomed us and offered drinks and gave us menus. I asked which bloody mary mix they used and was quickly offered a sample of their home made bloody mary mix which was outstanding !!
Wife had the Dove salad with shrimp accompanied with a very pleasing homemade balsamic dressing. Shrimp had a hint of a smoked flavor that set this a step above expectations. Excellent. I opted for a Caesar salad that was also obviously homemade with an outstanding dressing and warm crispy tasty croutons, followed by smoked salmon that had been shaved into thin slices baked then smoked. Wife and I both quickly determined the Dove III was right up there with our favorites we had just visited in New Orleans and New York but a lot closer to home :o)
Now I need to return to try a few more of their specials and another "Carlo Special" after dinner drink.
