Asian-inspired tidbits like chicken satay and coconut shrimp-and-seaweed salad excite an otherwise ordinary seafood-based menu that caters to postcard-writing tourists and financial types who drift over from Wall Street. American menu standards include workaday items like New England clam chowder, burgers, a shrimp club sandwich, and pastas. Zingier options range from Ahi tuna salad with chunks of seared, sesame-seed-encrusted fish on a bed of leafy greens (large enough for two) to grilled lamb chops with spicy mango reduction. Skip the Chilean sea bass in favor of the golden sautéed tilapia in a mild lobster sauce, served with piquant, polenta-like corn patties. The interior is appropriately nautical: In addition to doomed lobsters lolling in a tank near the door are enormous blue canvas-covered fans rotating overhead like oversized sails, and plastic swordfish mounted on wall plaques. Cleverly tiered seating guarantees a harbor view from every table. In the summertime, the restaurant extends its hours and its tables, to outdoor, al fresco dining. It can feel a bit like a trip to the seaside: boats bobbing in the harbor, ample sunshine, and even a small outdoor tiki bar mixing up fruity blender drinks with festive little umbrellas. All that's missing is the sand in your shoes.
