Moonstruck Restaurant Review: This stately house is the setting for drinks and dinner: sit inside, amongst potted palms, ceiling fans and a candlelit piano bar; or outside on one of three wide, wraparound porches. The view reveals arched footbridges over narrow Wesley Lake and the genteel, colorful manses of Ocean Grove. The menu leans toward light and healthful fare spiked with flavors from around the world. Fresh seafood and chic cocktails offer maximum allure. Try the sesame grilled tuna with a ginger-soy-wasabi drizzle accompanied by buckwheat noodle salad, or opt for the simple penne chicken and peas dressed in olive oil, butter, garlic and rosemary. Then splurge with black-and-white crème brûlée, where pockets of luscious melted chocolate hide beneath the creamy custard and delicate, crisped sugar surface. Service can be harried on summer weekends. The wine list is deep and well chosen.
