A quick look at the menu showed no deep-fried anything, leading me to believe SIlver Lounge does not have a Fryolater, something that disappointed Tess but that I found refreshing. I like the idea of baked, broiled and pan-seared food, especially steak and seafood.
You can still get a burger and a decent local beer for under $20 at what is now The Bog Pub, but you can also get pan-roasted salmon nestled between creamy coconut red lentils and curried carrot noodles with dill creme fraiche ($23). I did. I got that.
At Fishermen's View, dinner started with a complimentary miniature loaf of cornbread - three loaves arrived hot, with cinnamon butter. It was perfect, not too sweet and with that very slightly grainy texture that signals the use of cornmeal that hasn't been overly processed. It was so moist I didn't even use the butter.
It was buzz about the amazing beef that had brought us to this little storefront, so we, of course, ordered a Vagabond Burger ($15.95) with caramelized onion, aged cheddar, maple bacon and Thousand Island dressing.
