Mrs. W and I got a rare night out so we tried this place -- they're in the Entertainment book this year.

Overall, a pleasant surprise. The food was very good. I got a piece of swordfish that was cooked perfectly. Mrs W got surf (crabcake) and turf (filet). The crabcake was a bit salty. but loaded with lump crabmeat.

Salt and pepper calamari appetizer was also very good. No tentacles, but the batter was light and crisp.

For bread we got cheesy popovers -- a nice surprise. Seconds were offered but we wanted to save room.

Desserts looked tempting but we were pleasantly full.

Decor is typical new suburban -- cool, bright, and airy.

This was a good find for us outer suburbanites. We have also enjoyed the Silk Road Afghan restaurant in Landsdowne, where there are several other eateries that also look promising.
