I was quite tempted by a special, the spicy shrimp Kung Pao ($15.40) with udon noodles, but went with the "Tokyo Style" ahi tuna ($15.50/$19.50). Good decision. I've never had better sushi-grade tuna. Seared lightly on all sides, the fat slices melted in my mouth. It was served with Asian vegetables and jasmine rice, with wasabi and pickled ginger, accompanied by a small bowl of tamari for optional dipping, but otherwise unsullied. There are four choices of sauces for the other fish: mango salsa, chimichurri, "Pan Asian," and lemon butter.
Johnnie was attracted to a special titled "Kate's Wild North Atlantic Haddock with Feta + Artichokes" ($20.40) and was quite pleased with her choice. It was delicately baked instead of sautéed with its herbed breadcrumb coating, then topped with artichoke hearts and feta and served with garlic mashed potatoes plus a chickpea concoction that included sun-dried tomatoes and spinach.
Dessert? You bet. The key lime pie with roasted pecan crust ($5.90)? Tempting, but we went for the chocolate crème brûlée special ($6.20). It was rich and plentiful, as fat and happy as we felt upon leaving.
