Fresco Steak & Seafood Grill Restaurant Review

: This gem of a strip mall restaurant is unexpectedly pretty, with an appealing menu and food that is reliably good and served with a generous hand. The raw bar is a seafood lover’s temptation with a chilled cocktail “for two or more” that could serve a crowd as a veritable aquarium full of clams on the half shell, shrimp cocktail, crab claws, jumbo lump crab meat, and oysters served with cocktail sauce and mustard. Notable among the steaks and chops is the grilled tenderloin of beef wrapped in bacon, topped with herb bread crumbs and finished with a brandy demi-glaze sauce. Another entrée, seafood risotto, is a creamy combination of wild rice, lobster, shrimp and scallops sautéed with asparagus and fresh tomatoes. This is a BYOB, which is a nice little savings.
