Little touches set this upscale seafood spot apart from standard pretheater localesóbread is served with olive oil as well as ricotta for dipping, and a sampling of charcuterie (soppressata with olives and goat cheese) arrives at the table before you’ve even ordered. When the time comes to select an entrée, you’ll be presented with a daily changing fish market list in addition to the regular menu. Choose a fish and then decide how you’d like it cooked: Grilled? Baked? Steamed? Pan-roasted? Of course, ma’am! Gladly, sir! Standards like the crispy calamari and scallops in the fritto misto deliver crunch and a hint of lemon. The pan-roasted halibut, served over artichoke ravioli and mixed vegetables, has a lightly browned exterior but maintains a moist texture, complimented by a barigoule vinaigrette. There are also a number of meatier options, and a roasted duck breast plated with red cabbage and butternut squash is juicy without crossing over into fatty territory. Try the crème brulée for dessert; the trio of flavors offers a tasting of vanilla, coffee, and pistachio.
