THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cfood Restaurant Review

: Start with a shot glass of bisque or gazpacho and then be sure to order a selection of the cheeky appetizers. Lightly battered popcorn shrimp served in a martini glass come atop popcorn. Avocado sundae consists of flavorful layers of guacamole, fresh tomato salsa and sour cream in an ice cream glass. Crab cakes are two small balls of crispy battered crab with a lobster-saffron sauce. Fish mains are whatever is fresh that day and are offered grilled, oven baked or beer battered. Whole fish may be Portuguese orate, European sea bass or red bream. Cut filets include Scottish salmon, Atlantic baby halibut, Arctic char and bluenose. Three signature sauces always accompany to jazz things up---jalapeƱo, salsa and tartar. The rather uninspired side dishes are generous in portion. Greens (sugar snap peas, snow peas, Brussels sprouts and broccoli) are dolloped with garlic and pan fried to be hot but still almost raw. Brunch, a prix-fixe bargain, offers a choice of any three items from the sweet (e.g. pancakes, french toast), savory (eggs and the like) and side selections.
