Clams & ussels in a spicy sauce - my favorite!
This year Cal and I went over a long weekend in October - great weather and a fun time had by all (as usual). We ate out several times during our stay and enjoyed my aunt's wonderful cooking as well.
Near the beginning of our stay we dined at il tesoro in Edgartown at the Charlotte Inn. Overall I was pleased with the experience, especially the spicy mussel and clam appetizer my dad ordered (above), the pesto gnocci (below) and the dessert.
Tuna steak - very good.
Seafood pasta special - not as flavorful as I would have liked. Next time I'll stick with the tomato version. Also, it was supposed to have lobster in it but I don't remember tasting any.
Pesto Gnocci - light and deliciously garlicky. Highly recommended by my cousin Amanda!
Dessert selection - we tasted several of these. My favorite was the berry tart.
Had to go for a lobster roll - following a long bike ride, this was tasty and I enjoyed the sweet potato fries, too.
Cal tried the Fish & Chips. He liked this dish, although I think we were so hungry we would have enjoyed anything!
Tapas portions of calamari and carmelized sea scallop with fig sauce - good.
One of the Greek pasta dishes - I can't remember which one - not listed on the online menu. I do remember it was tasty.
Mussel tangine - the best savory dish of the meal; interesting spices used to enhance the fresh seafood.
Lamejun - an interesting melange of flavors but this version turned out dry.
Falafel with rice.
"The Stack" - for some reason this fried eggplant sandwich was served atop raw eggplant this evening - very strange indeed.
The best part of the meal with the burnt sugar ice cream that accompanied this giant and dense chocolate cake.
Mocha creme brulee was also tasty.
