Fodor's Expert Review Eli's
Creative cuisine inspired by Asian comfort food emerges from the kitchen of this intimate bistro. The fare changes seasonally but may include appetizers like steamed bao (buns), tuna nachos, and marinated lamb tartare. Roasted George's Bank scallops with charred eggplant puree might show up as a main course, along with the crowd-pleasing Eli's Surf & Turf burger, a short-rib-and-brisket burger topped with poached lobster and chorizo jam. Red-pepper risotto and roasted tofu "scallops" have been hits on the vegetarian menu. The pastry chef enjoys local fame for seasonal favorites like almond-berry cake and bread pudding. Wait times can be long in summer, when the tiny bar is prime real estate.
