We had a wonderful meal at Driftwood last night and are eager to go back again. The lobster roll appetizer was delicious, but different. It had lobster claw meat cut up small on a buttery brioche roll, flavored with tarragon and a touch of heat. My black grouper was wonderfully seared and cooked just right, served with large white beans in a tasty light sauce. He had Morrocan spiced shrimp served with some of the best lentils and bacon I have ever eaten.
The decor is fresh and new but not as stylish as most restaurants in this price range. The dining room is small and we could easily hear the conversations at nearby tables. Our waitress Sarah was attentive but spoke very quickly in a loud voice.
For the area, it was great to have some onsite parking and nearby street parking too.
I enjoyed a glass of sauvignon blanc from South Africa that was less fruity than the Marlboroughs I usually drink - very good.
