Oceanique Restaurant Review

: The setting is artsy, the patrons are eclectic and the seafood is impressive at this North Shore restaurant, which changes its menu daily (a seven-course tasting is offered, too). Grilled calamari may get a ginger accent, while scallop sashimi --- as appealing to the eye as the palate --- may mingle with watercress, beets, cucumber and basil essence. Hawaiian yellowfin tuna with bacon and seasonal mushrooms could wow. When the bouillabaisse is available, have it, and don’t be afraid to snag the roasted Maryland oysters (the payoff is big). This place is not completely limited to seafood, however; some of the other dishes have tasty moments --- as in Hubbard squash ravioli with brown butter-sage sauce. The winning wine list is extensive with lots of seafood-savvy wines by the glass and over 800 bottles.
