55 MAIN offers a wide selection of diverse continental dishes that will satisfy just about everyone. Dress code is casual and the interior decor is comfortable and inviting for both couples and groups. This restaurant is BYOB, so bring your favorite bottle of red or...white wine and / or beer to compliment your meal.
I had the "Lamb chops and roasted potato special", which is not on the standard menu, so remember to ask if they have any specials before you order off of the main menu. The lamb was well prepared, but the portion was small and I’m glad that I ordered the salad wedge as an appetizer. If you are a big dinner eater, ask about portion size first, and then decide if you want to order an Appetizer and/or a Salad. I had the salad wedge which was excellent as they added extra condiments of my choice (olives) upon my request.
My wife had the Boneless Beef Short Ribs - gnocchi, carrots, butternut squash, caramelized onions, pinot noir demi-glace., which she thoroughly enjoyed as well.
I had the opportunity to sample the Wasabi Seared Tuna - gingered rice, Asian vegetable sauté, wasabi aioli, which was excellent.
One of my friends had the Slow Cooked Pork Osso Bucco - mushroom and sun dried tomato risotto, pan gravy, which he thoroughly enjoyed and it was also a large enough portion to satisfy a big appetite.
For Dessert, I ordered the vanilla/ chocolate mousse combination dish, which was excellent.
Alejandra, our server, did a great job in helping us with our selections and with table service in general.
Our dinner reservation was for 7:30 PM so there was more than adequate street parking in front of the restaurant.
Overall I enjoyed 55 Main and wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking a great meal at moderate prices.
My compliments to Chef Gold!More
