211 Clover Lane Restaurant Restaurant Review: With French country décor and a raked gravel garden where honeysuckle blooms in the spring, 211 Clover has long been one of the city's most beautiful restaurants. A makeover added a spacious bar with an enormous brass chandelier hovering over grouped easy chairs, and an inviting private dining room complete with a fireplace. Seafood entrées excel at lunchtime: spicy shrimp salad with mixed greens, avocado and mango, or the delicate trout, wilted spinach, lemon and capers. Pair either with a glass of sparkling wine. Beef tenderloin carpaccio with truffle oil is a good beginning at dinner to precede duck, pork, veal or chicken mains. Vegetarian ricotta gnocchi combine oyster mushrooms, baby squash, cipollini and Parmigiano Reggiano. Addictive lemon mini scones and marmalade are served as a prelude to the prix-fixe Sunday brunch, for which choices include savory omelets, sweet french toast and light seafood dishes. Fruit dominates the dessert menu with house-made ice creams and sorbets and a range of cobblers. Proprietor Andrew Smith and his experienced staff provide service to match the food and atmosphere.
