reveilles and I went to The Lady Killigrew tonight for dinner. They are located near The Montague Bookmill (motto: "Books you don't need in a place you can't find"). The menu at The Lady Killigrew is quite limited, but it's interesting.
I had a panini with apples marinated in maple syrup and balsamic vinegar, brie, and apricot jam. reveilles had a panini with sausage, cheddar, and whole grain mustard. Both were served with a side salad. The salads were excellent: mixed greens with diced carrots and diced beets in a light but flavorful vinaigrette. The sandwiches were on organic sourdough bread which was nicely toasted. (Note: I hate places that "toast" bread by just making it warm. Toasted bread should be browned and noticeably crunchy.) I was afraid my sandwich would be too sweet, but the balsamic vinegar and the sourdough contributed enough tartness to result in a flavorful but balanced sandwich. For dessert, we had vanilla ice cream covered in port (not port sauce or a port reduction, but 1 ounce of port poured over the ice cream). This dessert was not a combination I would have tried on my own, but now that we've tried it, it's something I could see myself making at home in the future. We both enjoyed it.
As a fun addition to the dining experience, they had a collection of board games available. reveilles and I played a game of Scrabble and, for the first time, I beat reveilles (242 to 228). WOOT!
There is a second, fancier restaurant at the same location called The Night Kitchen. reveilles and I ate there once. The food was good but not great, especially not for the price. If we go back to The Montague Bookmill, we will only eat at The Lady Killigrew.
P.S.: I couldn't to The Montague Bookmill without buying some used books. I came home with Candyfreak by Steve Almond and Keys to the City by Joel Kostman.
