As soon as my boyfriend and I walked into Little Owl tonight, we were warmly greeted by one of the owners (I think), who also shook hands with each of us on the way out. The same level of thought and care went into each of the dishes that we ordered tonight. I had the halibut, which was really wonderful. There was a generous portion of halibut with a golden brown crust on top that gave the fish a nice texture. The halibut had a very clean, fresh taste. This dish was served with green mashed potatoes, but I don't remember what ingredient made them green. My first bite was creamy and wonderful, but succeeding bites were a bit more grainy--perhaps because the fish juices had diluted the mashed potatoes. My boyfriend ordered the NY strip with radicchio, pancetta, and fennel. The steak was perfectly cooked and flavored. His only complaint was that there wasn't a side dish, just a garnish on top. I ordered the brownie cake for dessert off of the limited menu (about 5-6 items, including an ice cream and sorbet option). The cake was good.
There was a lot of eye candy at Little Owl--golden brown "crispy chicken," a thick slab of pork chop, plump shoft shell crabs, and huge scallops, among other offerings. I'm excited to go back.
