Stone Road Grille, NOTL
Stone Road Grille has opened a beautiful new extension so it will no longer be so hard to get a table.
Dinner last night was great, as always. Our party had mussels, scallop risotto and arugula salad to start. Risotto was especially delicious, moist, cooked just right.
Main courses: Pork three ways (shoulder, belly, bubble 'n' squeak) was a knockout. Salmon very tasty and Lamb Shank fall-off-the-bone tender with a densely flavored sauce.
Minor disappointment at dessert: the vanilla pannacotta with stewed rhubarb was too little rhubarb and too bland a pannacotta. On other hand, Mini ice-cream cones with four different fruit sorbets was a knockout.
Bottom line: virtually everything is good. The place remains ace, with cheerful smart service, even at the height of the Saturday night rush.
