The Saltwater Grill Restaurant Review

: This sleek and snug downtown eatery is an island hot-spot. Among starters, choose from Icy Bay blue mussels steamed in a garlicky white wine sauce, oysters from Prince Edward Island and littlenecks from Florida. Or consider the deftly fried asparagus spears topped with lump crab meat and sauced with garlic butter. Fine soups from the kitchen, like roasted tomato with cumin and coriander, compete with full-bodied gumbo served piping hot from the kettle. The menu is printed daily to capitalize on the freshest offerings available. A signature dish, the Shanghai delight, presents the best catch of the day steamed and served on a bed of spinach and bok choy with a ginger-soy sauce. Lobster tacos, barbecue-spiced oysters and ample corn-dusted crab cakes are possibilities as well, as are pastas and risottos and meaty choices such as a Texas T-bone. For dessert, we single out the chocolate truffle cake with raspberry coulis.
