Cape May Reviews pt.2: Union Park

Union Park – This was our best dining experience in Cape May, and I recommend it highly. More elegant and professional (and more expensive) than Louisa’s (see previous post), though still casual (no one in jackets), Union Park exceeded our expectations. Our waiter opened our bottles of wine (it’s also a BYO)and described the tempting specials, which only increased our frustration, for the entire printed menu was tantalizing enough, and there is only so much a person can eat! Wife’s first course was a simple caprese salad—well executed, but no surprises. Mine was venison carpaccio. The meat could have been more flavorful, but it was very tender and seasoned innovatively with lemon-infused oil, garlic, and cheese. Our entrées were top-notch. Veal medallions and bits of lobster over a mix of tiny vegetables and potatoes, in a light lobster sauce was delicious. But the winner of the evening was Wife’s scallops, cooked perfectly, dressed in Asian spices and served with wild mushrooms atop a beautifully perfumed mound of truffled mashed potatoes. She is still swooning. Excellent chocolate-banana bread pudding capped the meal.
