Fodor's Review

Look for Mike O'Grady's stylish modern restaurant in a revamped alley at the river end of Quay Street. Tables clad in white damask (covered with paper tablecloths at lunchtime), narrow floor-to-ceiling windows, and a quarry-tile floor set the stage for an informal, bistro-style menu. A seafood bar offers a tapas-style light menu, that includes sushi, local oysters, and fresh crab cocktail. On the main menu, a great starter is seared king scallops and crispy pork belly with cauliflower puree and plum preserve. Main courses have similarly imaginative twists—breast of chicken and venison sausage with girolles, farfalle, pear and rosemary puree, or sautéed scallops with smoked garlic-infused spinach, and a vegetarian favorite: wild mushroom and asparagus risotto with truffle oil and Parmesan shavings.
