  1. I generally don't ever order shrimp, because I don't love it, except in shrimp cocktail form. The sizzling shrimp with garlic though was wonderful and very flavorful. I only wish it were a bigger dish.

      I *love* the Cuban Cigar; the Duck a l'Orange Crepes takes second place.

        Hey, thanks! I had tastes of both of these and loved both. My favorite plate was the baby back ribs with apple fritters, however.

    2. I am a big fan of CC. I'd have to recommend the beef stroganoff (and I'm not even much of a red meat fan), fried artichoke hearts, shrimp wontons, and the St. Jacob's zucchini. Also, although I prefer the classics when it comes to cocktails, I do love the "Some Like It Hot" cocktail, which is a variation on the dirty martini with a dash of sriracha hot chili sauce, and the lemongrass martini, which I've described to friends as like drinking summer in a glass -- light, fresh and effervescent. If you're not into the theme-y drinks, they can also do more classic fare very nicely.
