THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The StillRoom Restaurant Review

: Hidden in a neighborhood shopping center is this surprisingly upscale restaurant with an ambitious seafood-centric menu from former New York chef Sam Goldman. With walls splashed in rich dark colors, elegant wine racks and the intimacy of a living room, The StillRoom attracts a more mature crowd, while younger patrons congregate in the wine bar near the front entrance. For starters, the trio of cured meats turns out to be a generous presentation of pork rillettes, duck-and-chicken liver terrine, and prosciutto with various accoutrements. We particularly enjoy a walnut-crusted blue cheese tart with a copious complement of beets and arugula salad, offered as a special, and a puff pastry wild mushroom napoleon is also notable. Among entrées, nicely caramelized sea scallops are served atop buttery spaghetti squash, while swordfish is given a Cuban twist with black beans and rice and a spicy mojo. For dessert, there’s a pain perdu with whiskey sauce, flourless chocolate cake and lemon tart. The wine list, primarily a California affair dominated by familiar labels, is less than inspired.
