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. The décor complements chef Troy Schuster's seasonal menu. 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 combines oyster mushrooms, baby squash, cippolini 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.
