Favorite restaurants
I want to give you my favorite places to go to eat, but it's also clear to me that everyone has different tastes and budgets so you have to remember my recommendations are personal. Nonetheless for me there are two ingredients to an excellent restaurant experience. First and foremost is the food - good quality, tasty and hopefully something I could not easily do myself. The latter criterion gets trumped sometimes by just wanting to eat out and be served. Second criterion, and almost as important is the atmosphere - fun, creative, hospitable and great friendly service. The people make the place (host, servers, bartenders, buspeople, etc.) but the atmosphere should be great as well. These things are what I look for to go back time and time again.
Top of my list. Italian food but oh so tasty and reasonable. And Shivane the owner/host sooo friendly. She brings her staff from her Boston restaurants every year for the summer. On the water doesn't hurt but the atmosphere is exciting and fun. Only Mem Day to Labor Day usually. Not to be missed.

Sit at the bar and enjoy the friendly bartender(s). If you are 4 or more get a table so you can converse more easily. Any of the tapas are great.

You should go here to enjoy Jimmy at the bar and Raife at the door. Raife used to work for me when I had Gallerani's Cafe many a year ago. He's a doll. And Jimmy his lover is stupendous as well. You'll love the atmosphere hidden down underneath it all. Go.
