Blue Iguana Restaurant Review

: This quirky little restaurant with its inventive and ambitious menu brings city-style food to the ’burbs. You can't go wrong with the appetizer bacon-wrapped scallops, followed at lunch by assorted salads, burgers or offbeat sandwiches and small entrées, such as asparagus ravioli with pecans. There is a decidedly Southern influence to the fare, especially when you consider the po' boys. Large plates include Maryland corn fried oysters, chicken and waffles, and pan-seared duck breast. Look for Key lime pie or white chocolate bread pudding for dessert. Ask about the wine offerings.
