You can plan to start off your evening in the bar sipping one the best cosmopolitans I've had in ages. It has just the right amount of lime. After enjoying your coctails, step into the main restaurant upstairs. It is decorated in a rustic italian style and the tables near the window overlook the waterfront. We started our dinner with a wild mushroom ravioli drizzled with a beet puree. It was a special that evening and it was extraordinary. I can then reccommend the Lobster of the house. It is steamed, the cut into larges pieces and sauteed in a mixture of extra virgin olive,red pepper, lemon and wine. It was truly the best lobster I have ever had. After dinner you can retire to the cigar bar and lounge where you can have coffee and desert on one of the many couches. So sit back and enjoy the food and atmosphere on the West side.
