I've always thought that Little D was a solid place for dinner. Never disappointing but never outstanding either. Well, last week my wife and I went to Little D for dinner for the first time in a while and it was truly outstanding. I had the rosemary infused vodka martini which was really excellent. We shared a starter salad with greens, pickled red onions and gigante beans with a vinaigrette. All of the ingredients were incredibly fresh and the acidity of the onions and the dressing was nicely balanced by the creaminess of the beans.
I had the fish special which was a hake with English peas, asparagus, greens and an excellent light sauce. The hake was perfectly cooked with a nice crisp top and flesh that was exactly the right consistency. My wife had the coca cola ribs which she raved about. The ribs came with a very nice hominy cake.
I was impressed by the freshness of the ingredients and the simple but expertly executed preparations. I thought it was New American food at its best. I'm definitely going back for dinner again soon especially considering that one can walk across to Beer Table either before or after dinner for an excellent beer!
