The Fiddlehead Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Whether you're in the mood for New England comfort food or a dish inspired by a land far away, chef Melissa Chaiken can help satisfy your craving. Baked sticky rice with coconut milk is a crunchy snack while the fried mozzarella curd transports you to a warm Italian kitchen. Try a simple burger made more complex by ground bacon or panko-crusted haddock with corn succotash on the Down East side, while the lamb masak merah with jalapeño and pineapple chutney takes you across the sea. For dessert, there is a crème brûlée cheesecake with vanilla bean sugar, the cheesecake providing a tang to the sweet, or the crisp pear pie for two. Wines are primarily French and Italian, but try one of the hand-crafted cocktails like the Fiddlehead Bloody with a made-to-order Bloody Mary blend, Cajun salt-crusted rim, pickled fiddleheads and cornichons. It's an appetizer in itself.
