59 Lake, Rehoboth, Review

Bride of the Juggler | Jun 20, 2005 08:34 AM

We had dinner Friday night at 59 Lake in Rehoboth Beach. Overall a great experience at a high quality restaurant. Service was good and friendly. The hosts stopped by every table to say hello and welcome.

A fois gras pate came out as the amuse bouche, which my husband enjoyed. The bread was a homemade strawberry bread.

For appetizers, my husband had one of the top mussel appetizers he's ever had. Mussels over warm gingerbread with blueberries and a strong bitter chocolate sauce. Unique, interesting, and great. I had a goat cheese salad with lovely texture and flavor pairings of pea shoot greens, spicy peanuts, and sweet pears.

Mains: I had black grouper expertly prepared, over sweet mango sauce with small fried somethings in it that threw a little salty into the sweet. Very good.

Desserts were large and interesting. I had the cocoa-iest creme brulee ever, with shortbread that was such magnificent texture. I've been fooled by shortbread all my life if it's supposed to be this good. My husband has a molten chocolate cake that was a little too molten, with sweet corn ice cream. A small pitcher of chocolate sauce was overkill since the cake was so molten.

The wine list had many wines under $40. They also had a specialty cocktail menu.

All in all a wonderful dinner, as good as some of the best in Philly, we will definitely return. Thank you.
