It is a romantic and beautiful setting.
Water Grill boasts an exposed kitchen, elegant, high-back booths in the dining room and modern art on the walls. Soft lighting and an intimate table arrangement give out a warm and inviting vibe, and the crowd reflects its business district location. Start your dining experience with oysters on the half shell (six varieties to choose from), and white chowder with Manila clams or Maryland prime soft-shell crabs with salsify puree, which both rear their head on the menu from time to time.
Little Door expands over a preferred outdoor patio and bar as well as a more intimate yet less demanded main dining room. Tree branches reach over candlelit diners in a table setting populated with love struck two-tops. The bar features Bordeaux, Napa, Australian and local wineries in varying selections of red and white. Vodka drinkers are out of luck, as the restaurant only offers beer and wine service. Securing a table without a reservation is improbable on weeknights and impossible on the weekend. Those with a reservation almost always face a twenty to thirty-minute wait, and while many see it simply as eccentric, others see it as plain rude.
The menu changes every month but expectantly features a phenomenal filet, signature lamb and semi-ambitious seafood selections on each debut. The appetizers and salads are simple and understated, meaning lots of arugula and little else needed.
Ago's open kitchen where he fashions generous plates of polenta and risotto. His extensive menu also includes a hefty striped sea bass, a solid veal chop and a grilled ribeye from Ago's wood-burning oven. Nevertheless, patrons swear by the smaller culinary accessories like the peach martini and plates of prosciutto. If your last name isn't DiCaprio or Gandolfini, it's worth calling ahead to reserve yourself a spot.
