Martinique - It's Not Just for Nice Weather Anymore

It used to be that I would only go to Martinique Bistro when the weather was perfect for sitting outside, i.e. between 65 & 80 degrees w/ low humidity and no chance of your evening getting ruined by inclement weather. The food was always good, but I was never "wowed" by it. After my last two experiences there, I could probably be persuaded to go and sit inside if sitting on the courtyard was out of the question.

I dined there Saturday night and the meal was outstanding. Our 4 top shared most of what we got, including the gnocchi appetizer (heavenly), chevre salad, escargot & charcuterie plate. I ordered the fish which I couldn't begin to tell you the name of, something Pacific or other. While I love local seafood and I am an ardent "locavore" most of the time, it's nice to go to a place where you can fish that is more off the beaten path (the last time I ate there I had the Barracuda which is still one of the best fish dishes I've ever had). The rest of the entrees and desserts were also very good. While the service could have been more attentive, they were certainly competent and pleasant when they were around.

Anyone else had any good meals there recently?
