By the sea... actually by the sound...

Dinner at The Wharf restaurant in Madison. We had a wonderful view of Long Island Sound with the boats and the beach and it was not raining!

We started off with Goat Cheese and Vidalia Onion Tart which was filled with Caramelized Vidalia Onions, Goat Cheese and Herbs Served with Baby Arugula salad. The top part of the crust was nice and flaky but the bottom was soaked by the dressing from the salad. The dressing was good but would have preferred in not soak the bottom of the tart crust. I am just picky about crust. Also had the Lobster and Shrimp Cocktail. It was 1/2 of a 3/4 pound lobster with the body filled with cole slaw (wow that was good cole slaw) and 3 jumbo shrimp. It looked good and was so delicious.

For dinner I had the Pan Seared Organic Salmon in a Citrus Beurre Blanc Sauce. I liked that the sauce was served on the side. The salmon was perfect. My husband had the Pan Seared Sea Scallops in the Black Peppercorn Sauce. The scallops were also perfect.

Even had dessert. I had to after I saw the Key LIme Pie on the menu. It was so light and fluffy I am sure it did not contain a lot of calories...
