i know this is not a big chowhound spot, but i'm going with friends for a group dinner and would like something edible. does anyone have suggestions on what to get/ what to avoid?
Avoid the crab legs (mealy and obviously frozen), but the oysters I had were decent. Fiance had crab cakes that while not awful and/or rancid, were just pretty blah. The one dish I had there that I recall very fondly is their panzanella salad. Lots of hunks of roasted chicken, big croutons and fresh tomatoes well-dressed in the oil vinaigrette. I thought it was a great dish.
hahaha, sorry doc, wasn't my call. i got the panzanella salad and i was pleasantly surprised after all the negative things I've heard regarding this particular establishment — the bread was nice and toasty and not soggy at all, chicken was good, dressing was well-balanced...wasn't the best panzanella i've ever had but was definitely far from the worst. The only thing about it was that it was HUGE. I mean, enormous, everybody at the table was just in shock at how big it was. But my food was by far the best. So thanks MJ! I totally owe you one :-)
