Review: The Sea Goose

By BILL RODRIGUEZ  |  July 2, 2013

The same could be said for my special ($28), four fat sea scallops atop slices of vine-ripened tomatoes, mesclun below. The fresh Connecticut scallops were topped with a delicious tomato relish, the taste restrained enough to not overwhelm.

The regular menu entrées? Ten, with half of them seafood, plus a half-dozen fried seafood possibilities. Ordering ribeye ($30) or roasted chicken breast ($21) at a place like this would be like watching football at a wedding, but they aim to please. More pleasing would be their flounder Grenobloise ($23) or their signature seafood stew ($34).

Since my meal was light, I had room for dessert. There was bananas foster ($8), a favorite that has fallen out of favor on menus, so I chose to have one all to myself. Butter and rum, sautéed bananas, and vanilla ice cream; why is that not still as popular as apple pie? Yum. My table mate wasn’t complaining about her cheesecake topped with fresh crushed pineapple, though the cake could have been creamier.

The Sea Goose. A goose-free menu, but plenty from the sea to make up for that.
