Johnnie enjoyed her dish. The lobster with plum wine and ginger ($31.95) was simmered in coconut milk, although that ingredient came across more in the accompanying "vegetable Napoleon." That last component consisted of a medley mildly seasoned with red Thai curry, between two fried triangles of wonton wrappers. The claw meat was more tender than the rather chewy split tail. A cone of sushi rice was on the side, as well as a tangle of fried rice vermicelli, as on my dish.
The meal-cappers were one of those lists of mouthwatering dessert descriptions that could keep you indecisive until you've worked up an appetite to order them all. The crème brûlée trio finessed such vacillation by providing chocolate, coconut, and ginger-lemongrass. We decided on the chocolate waffle ($7.50) and were content. Two dollops of whipped cream with sliced strawberries, two pieces of banana, two small waffles, and an easily divided scoop of vanilla ice cream — obviously it was designed to prevent fights. If you don't like to share, don't come to the Place.
