Morrison-Clark Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Upscale American cooking emerges from the kitchen at this old-time favorite. The menu may include a five-course meal with the choice of Arctic char or New York steak as the main course. But on ordinary days, the Southern-inspired menu may star such dinner fare as lamb two ways with polenta, crispy organic chicken with pancetta, black cod with lentils, and the house specialty, the crab cakes. Luncheon dishes are lighter, of course, and include a crab cake sandwich, chicken potpie, a hamburger, and grilled flatiron steak. Whatever you choose at either time, don’t miss the classic, and Morrison-Clark staple, lemon chess pie.
