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-grabbing as the vistas. Start things off with an intriguing fried artichoke appetizer with fresh basil aïoli or Scandinavian potato pancakes with dill, lingonberry and applesauce. Seafood lovers might opt instead for the cold bar and chowders. The heavyweight contenders are split into four sections: seafood, stockyard and chop house, poultry and veal, and specialties of the house. Some standouts include the maple and bacon wrapped cod with roasted corn shrimp sauce as well as the classic Austrian veal wiener schnitzel and Bavarian sauerbraten. You’ll also find dishes with more French or Italian inspiration, like chicken Cordon Bleu or veal scallopini. Deals like two for one drink specials on Mondays and Tuesdays and complimentary happy hour barbecue Wednesdays through Fridays draw crowds, though you’ll want to stick around for sunset over the sound.
