The Silver Swan Restaurant Review: This dockside restaurant nestled on the cusp of Centerport Harbor is home to North Shore views, but the cooking is as attention-getting as the vistas. Start your meal with fried calamari, dusted with a combination of semolina flour, herbs and romano cheese. We also like the crispy Brooklyn mozzarella logs, made from homemade mozzarella curds. The heavyweight contenders are split up into four sections: seafood, stockyard and chop house, poultry and veal, and specialties of the house. Shallot-thyme-crusted lamb chops are oven-roasted and basted with a roasted garlic-tomato jus; the unorthodox presentation might make you hesitant to destroy the architectural wonder on the plate, but dig in, you won't be sorry. Cardamom-dusted Long Island duck is enhanced with a cider-sage butter sauce. The dessert menu, however, fails to inspire. Besides, with such a great view, the best way to end your meal is by ordering a cup of coffee and watching the sun set beyond the sound.
