Tallulah on Thames does what a lot of other restaurants are trying to do these days, especially in coastal New England: "farm-to-table" dining that takes traditional local ingredients and presents them in new ways, but relies upon traditional techniques and precision. Oh, and they do it really freaking well. We had a foursome of foodies for dinner and everyone was quite pleased. People who are complaining about high prices should be worried about the overpriced lobster rolls and fish'n'chips because this food was worth every penny. The attention to detail on a fresh tomato and burrata salad was a nice example of this. Sure, how good can a tomato and cheese salad really be? Transcendent, I'd say. At this place anyway. The duck was similarly exquisitely plated and cooked perfectly and - for once - a nice sized portion of meat. The cheese plate was a work of art in itself, and real thought had been put into the selections and accompaniments as well. We had a wonderful bottle of Cotes du Rhone and a sparkling rose available by the glass was also a nice pick.
If you want something a bit different from the shiny wood, open air oyster joints down on the main drag, seek out ToT.
