Again, had a wonderful meal at Gemmell's yesterday. Went for lunch and had the sand dabs, which were wonderful with a great sauce. It was served with tasty rice, small veggies and a delicious mousseline of carrots and zuccinni. For $11.95 there was a choice of soup or salad also. The simple salad had a nice vinegarette and the soup was potato and leek. We all enjoyed everything. The nice part of Gemmell's is the setting. It is nice to be able to sit and have a quiet conversation with each other. I have found since moving to this area from Newport that this is the place I take friends for great food and nice conversation. It always seems odd to me that people are waiting for an hour or so to go to El Torito, Wind and Sea and Harpoon Henry's when this gem is usually available.
