We ate at Persimmon in Bristol the other night and enjoyed it very much. Good thing # 1 -- they had half bottles of wine which is great as my husband no longer drinks. I had a very nice half bottle of cabernet (donm't remember what) for $18.
My husband had the lobster risotto appetizer which, he said, was superb -- and more lobster than risotto! I had the crab salad with avocado, which was very good -- a circle of crab with slices of avocado and mini greens on top.
He had duck for his main course and I had the tautog with mussels -- very well done but not enough mussels!
He had lemon parfait for dessert and I had a taste - also excellent. We were very pleased.
We are Philly chowhounds visiting our daughter in Barrington and enjoyed Persimmon very much.
