AAA Inspector Notes
This comfortable, modern American bistro is from celebrity chef Geoffrey Zakarian. The menu is creative but very approachable with such items as PEI mussels in coconut milk and green curry sauce; chicken salad with couscous, mango and mustard vinaigrette; and entrées including striped bass with fried green tomatoes, watermelon salsa and oyster sauce. The setting is relaxed as the eatery draws a stylish and sophisticated mix of business people and tourists alike.
