Fodor's Expert Review Calypso Grill
Shack chic describes this inviting split-level space splashed in Dr. Seuss primary colors that contrast with brick walls, hardwood furnishings, terra-cotta floors, trompe l'oeil shutters, and (real) French doors opening onto sweeping North Sound vistas. If the interior is like a Caribbean painting, the outdoor deck, with a view of frigate birds circling fishing boats, is a Winslow Homer. George Fowler's menu emphasizes fish hauled in at the adjacent dock, fresh and rarely overcooked. You won't go wrong with the unvarnished catch of the day grilled, blackened, or sautéed. Though this is seafood turf, landlubbers can savor escargot bourguignonne, beef carpaccio, or a proper rack of lamb. End with the sticky toffee pudding.
