Front Street is very elegant and quite romantic, if not as revered by locals as it used to be (in part because several noteworthy competitors have opened in recent years). Here classic Italian cooking is linked to offerings from Greece, southern France, and even North Africa. There's a nightly char-grilled fish special: match salmon, halibut, or tuna with a Latin, Berber, or Cajun spice rub; lemon-caper butter; or a ginger-soy-wasabi glaze. Other stellar dishes include
sage-and-butternut risotto, and truffled wild-mushroom bisque. The wine list is also a winner.

my wife and I. We were there in Sept. 08. Reservations a must, because we could not get into Front St. the year before. Food is very creative, knowledgeable waitstaff, and just a fine place. It is not a large place, so that's the only drawback.
