A re-visit with a favorite spot where reservations are a must. They have roughly 2 seatings, 7:30 and 9:30, so if you want a more relaxed visit you might go for the later time.

They are served with a sour cream like

sauce as well as wasabi and lemon, so you are well fixed if you want to season these mild flavors. The grilled monkfish was cooked perfectly, so moist and I love the large flake of this fish. The side salad was actually quite good and not the usual throwaway garnish.  They have great desserts but tonight I was just too full to indulge in any. They also have a nice selection of after dinner beverages.
