The Pearl in Rockland

So far I have been twice and the place and new chef (Michelle) get rave reviews from me. I could go there every night. Very, very good chowder. Sauteed shrimp with gigante beans, arugula and sun-dried tomatoes. Some of the best linguine and white clams I've ever had. Littlenecks in a pot with chorizo. Soft-boiled (but fried with bread crumbs?) egg on steamed asparagus with a glimmer of crabmeat. Excellent crab cakes. All good.

    Oh, and forgot to mention the excellent wine list, too!

      Oh man, I love gigante beans! Hard to find around here, I mostly ate them in Greece.
      We are planning to head up to Rockland a couple times this year so will definitely try The Pearl based on your recommendation. (besides our usual favorites!) Thanks.

          Right down on the Rockland harbor, behind the Time Out Pub.
