The extensive, eclectic offerings at Leftovers do a great job of highlighting fish and seafood. The mix-and-match menu includes a selection of various fish and crust options. One recent night, the 'special crust' was golden beet and coconut; unusual, yes, and intriguing, so I paired it with wahoo for a truly delicious dish. Each crust comes with a different mixture of greens, vegetables, and sauces, but our waiter quickly offered to swap the one matched with wahoo to another that sounded more appealing to me. The dish was superb. My friend also ordered from the daily menu, choosing shrimp and scallops in a garlic cream sauce over corkscrew paste. Another inspired creation.
At first glance, the menu at Leftovers might seem pretentious. Listing in detail the ingredients in each dish, it seems to suggest an elaborateness that high-quality seafood does not require. The food itself, however, while inventively prepared and appealingly presented, is just fine. No - more than fine; it's great.
We had room to give one dessert a try and found it good but not up to the rest of the meal. In fact, this was one area where the fussiness of the menu was borne out, since all desserts are apparently topped with a treatment of whipped cream, strawberries, blueberries, and berry sauce. We ordered a banana spring roll. The wonton wrapper was hard to cut with a fork, and the chipotle caramel sauce was overwhelmed by the berry sauce. Not bad - but not necessary.
Overall, a busy, dynamic dining room; helpful, capable service; creative, delicious meals - definitely a keeper.
