I never really do restaurant reviews here, but I’ve been swamped with work and meetings, (in other words, not much pretty stuff to photograph!) and I thought I’d try something new. Last weekend, we took the kiddos out for Sunday brunch. We were planning an outing and wanted some fortification. So we tried a new restaurant nearby in Glen Head, called The Fishery. It’s a seafood restaurant with a nautical bent. It took over the location from a tiki bar/crab shack that had been there for years and the transformation was definitely a big one. I loved the nautical flags that lined the walls.
Our meal started with warm bread served with a roasted head of garlic and olive oil. No pictures as the kiddos dived in immediately. I did manage to get a shot of the calamari served with two dipping sauces before it was gone, but not before they had cleared some out. I’m going to have to get faster on that trigger finger.
The kids had chocolate chip pancakes served with mounds of strawberries and home fries that were crisp and delicious. The hubs had steak and egg sliders – a really cute idea for brunch at home, I think, although I’ve never even tried steak and eggs. Toasted rolls with steak, eggs, cheese and creamed spinach. Served with more of those yummy potatoes. Aren’t the lobster claw toothpicks cute?
But mine was definitely the best. My photos from last week had me missing my lobster rolls. The hot lobster roll was a terrific choice for winter, and one I had never tried before. A toasted bun with fresh warm lobster meat topped with drawn butter. A definite calorie buster, but so good! The coleslaw was fresh and homemade and really delicious, but the fries were only so-so. I would definitely ask for a salad instead next time.
Excellent service, and great food make for such a pleasant experience don’t they? We’ll definitely be going back.
