Overview:

Disclamier - I consider the folks behind this restaurant as my friends..

Went last night for the first time... ordered oysters, fluke, sun fish, trout, and stuffed calamari...

The place was packed, too packed and it was very loud but there was very good energy and everyone seemed to be having good time. I really enjoyed the experience and they have done a fabulous job with the decor (though, if they are as popular as I think they will be, they will have to do something about noise dampening, the beautiful tile floors and hard wood planks just bounce noise off the painted-wood paneled walls. The decor is nautical, but very tasteful.

All of Guiseppe's food is beautiful and many of the Asian and other influences that find their way into his compositions are excellent and deftly handled. I think the service and the kitchen probably needs to find their groove, but nothing was was problematic, and not usual for a restaurant opened for just one week. A couple dishes could have benefited from a bit more acid (I am an acid freak), but everything was well executed, seasoned and presented. I will definitely go back, and most likely frequently when they open for lunch. I particularly liked the Sunfish Ceviche and the Fluke with Uni as well as the selection of Oysters

Special Dishes:

Cortes Island and Wellfleet Oysters, Sunfish Ceviche, Fluke with Uni, Trout with Vaudovan Lentils
