Avon Pavilion Restaurant Review

: Avon Pavilion at breakfast and lunch is not the same Avon Pavilion at dinner, but no matter when you dine here, you’ll enjoy the sound of the sea just a few hundred yards away. The place was once just a “summer shack” where you could buy take away food like hot dogs with kraut and cheese fries, and you still can, but thanks to some clever renovations, come night, when no wet bathing suits are allowed in the dining room, and with the help of moonlight and candle light, you can enjoy fare like blue mussels marinière or San Tropez shrimp---an entrée featuring shrimp, Italian spinach, diced tomatoes, Spanish olives and toasted pine nuts in a tropical citrus velouté–--all this tossed with semolina bow tie pasta. The menu offers steak and baby-back ribs, crab cakes and other fresh seafood. Desserts are familiar favorites such as berry shortcake and Toll House pie à la mode. There’s no wine list, so bring a nice bottle to go along with your menu selections.
