I made my second visit to Sea Salt this weekend and, for the second time, I had the lobster roll. When I had it on my first visit, it so perfectly met my dream of what a lobster roll would be (soft, buttery, lobstery), that I could not resist ordering it the second time. Both times, I traded out the potato chips for the very good french fries with thai curry ketchup. I hope to branch out on my third visit and try something else -- the anchovies being at the top of the list, with the Bacon, Lettuce and Trout sandwich a close second.

But the one thing that I was unexpectedly overwhelmed by was the fresh mint ice cream they serve with the chocolate-caramel-almond torte. On my first visit, when I placed my order for dessert, I had high hopes for the torte, and, being not much of a mint ice cream fan, figured I didn't need to it eat because, after all, the torte was the thing. Turns out the torte was not the thing (just kind of -- meh) ... but the ice cream! It's as if you broke a sprig off a mint plant and stuck it directly in your mouth. Only cool and creamy. No enhanced coloring, no enhanced sweetness, no artifically-enhanced mintiness. Just fresh, green flavor.

This last visit I had them hold the torte and just had a bowl of the ice cream. The waitress said that it was made in-house.

I would love to try it very lightly drizzled with a bittersweet chocolate sauce.
