Starry Night Cafe-Ferrisburgh VT

My wife and I celebrated our 15th anniversary at the Starry Night Cafe on Saturday night. The service was very attentive and very nice. I started out with a cocktail called a Lucious Lychee, which was kind of a vodka martini with Lychee fruit. Powerful, sweet, different.

We had calamari with a curry coconut dipping sauce as a shared appetizer. This was the star of the evening. Very tender, sweet and a good sized portion. The curry sauce was delicious, somewhat delicate yellow dipping sauce. No discernable coconut flavor, but good enough that I spread the remainder on my roll after the calamari was gone.

For an entree I had a latke with lobster meat and seared scallops. The latke was a bit soggy but it was flavorful and there was enough lobster to really taste it in the cake. The scallops were seared dark brown on top, but were exceedingly tender and sweet. There was a sauce but it added no real flavor to the meal. The only real complaint was that the "lobster tail" as advertised as sitting on top of the cake was really more like the size of a shrimp tail!

My wife had a salmon with string beans, carrots and rice. It was very nice; I would have preferred the salmon a little less done, but my wife prefers her fish more done so it was perfect for her. I only took a bite and it seemed good and she was very happy.

The entrees were sufficient in size, although by no means large.

We skipped the wine list and dessert. Dinner for two with one app., two entrees and one cocktail was $80 not including tip. I think it lived up to its reputation and definately would be going back. I thought the prices were fairly high for the area but not unfair and we did get a fine meal.
