Oh man, can I live here??!!?!
EVERYTHING we ordered here was amazing. Hubby and I came on a Sunday afternoon around 3:30, which seemed to be a good time as it was busy but not totally packed, and we were able to get seated inside right away. We ordered a dozen assorted oysters - fresh and perfect, with nary a grain of sand to be found. Only minor complaint is the oysters on this particular day were on the small side, but not a big deal - I mean how can you complain when the guy farms them himself?! We then ordered a few apps to split, instead of getting entrees, and this turned out to be a great choice. We each ordered a stuffie (perfect), and then split an order of calamari and the littleneck clams w/chourico. The calamari was perfect, tossed with capers, cherry peppers and just enough aioli sauce - yum.
But the littlenecks were the star of the show. I told my husband I could eat this dish every day for the rest of my life and not get sick of it. They come in a garlicky white wine sauce with chourico, tomatoes and white beans - the perfect sauce for scooping up with the clams - and a couple pieces of grilled baguette for dipping. The chourico was just right, not too spicy, not too mild, so as to add some flavor without overpowering the delicious, fresh clams. We practically licked the bowl clean!
The prices were surprisingly reasonable considering the quality and quantity of the food. They have a great array of starters, sandwiches and entrees, so there's something for everyone and in a variety of budgets. Nice wine selection and a good number of draft beers. Waitstaff was excellent. Location is gorgeous. They need more parking because they are so popular, but they handled it well by offering free valet so that they could squeeze more cars into their lot.
Can't wait to go back and try more of their food!!
