Friday Saturday Sunday Restaurant Review

: The tented ceiling imparts a vaguely Moorish feel to this intimate restaurant. Friday Saturday Sunday is counted upon by townies for dependable food and very personal service, and also for one of the best-priced wine lists around. Owner Weaver Lilly has worked with chef Reese Skulteti to craft an approachable American menu that includes a jumbo lump crab cake; horseradish and panko crusted tilapia with cilantro lime beurre blanc; grilled chipotle barbecued shrimp; and baked three-cheese eggplant roulade in a tomato-basil sauce. Still, longtime patrons can find the crème of mushroom soup, chicken Dijon, roast duck and chilled poached salmon that they've enjoyed for years. The pastry chef continues the restaurant's policy of decadent desserts with chocolate Kahlúa pie, coconut cream pie, Jewish apple cake and more. The romantic upstairs bar, with its glowing aquarium, is a good destination for cocktails and after-dinner drinks.
