Staying true to its roots, we chose the rustically-driven, alfresco patio for dinner—which was highlighted by swaying overhead pendants, climbing clematis and a gorgeous courtyard fountain.
This was a hard choice as we were literally forced to view the romanticizing dining room as we checked-in with the Maître D'.
We had a craving for those cool, summer breezes, and outside we went.
Starting off with a refreshing glass of champagne and a hand-crafted cocktail was an easy decision. "The Amelia" was a stellar choice. Concocted with Tito's gluten-free vodka, St. Germain elderflower liqueur, blackberry purée, and freshly squeezed lemon—finished with a sprig of fresh mint. Absolutely delish.
We followed suit with two incredible appetizers.
The Tuna Crudo, expertly blended with cucumber and chive oil, was topped with a tangy lemon crème. Indulgently satisfying and quite photogenic, I might add.
Next, came the Burratina & Watermelon. Tasting like a complete fantasy one could have dreamt up—we were lusting after every last bite of the creamy burrata, meshed with balsamic saturated strawberries, blackberries, balsamic and chopped mint.
For our main courses, we both decided on Nantucket Fluke. Hitting close to home (Boston), the fluke, also known as summer flounder, was delicate in both flavor and texture—meanwhile the flavor of the puréed parsnips was out of this world.
