Brewster Fish House in May
We didn't get to the Brewster Fish House as planned but we did go last night. When we arrived at 5:30 there wasn't a line and when we left at 7:30 there were open tables. We had a nice meal and are thinking of bringing my parents for their anniversary in June. I had the raspberry kir royale while my husband had his usual cocktail, a rusty nail. For first courses we had the tuna tartare and the Crispy Calamari. Both were good but I didn't really get a flavor of Asian black beans as advertised in the aioli with the Calamari. We liked the wine list which had 4 nice half bottles and a wide choice of wines by the glass. We had the Pouilly Fuisse half bottle with the first courses. For entrees we had the Duck Breast which came rare as requested and the Pan Roasted Monkfish. My husband was nervous that the blackberry sauce with the duck would be too sweet but it wasn't. The Monkfish was a little overcooked but not terribly. We ordered a glass of the California Barbera to go with the duck. For desserts we had the special strawberry soup with berries and sorbet ( my husband said the sorbet wasn't as good as mine-isn't he sweet?) and the dark chocolate devils food cake with the chocolate malted. The strawberry soup was fabulous while the chocolate cake was ok. My husband was thrilled that not only did they have armagnac on the list but a Danflou armagnac. He was in heaven. The bill came to $150 which we felt was reasonable.
