We hadn’t been to John Andrews in quite a few years, but as we are constantly searching for restaurants with interesting menus, I looked it up online and found that the menu is quite varied and interesting indeed. It was the perfect place for a quiet Sunday night dinner.
We started with fried calamari, and ricotta gnocchi. The calamari were nice and tender, and the gnocchi were in a light broth with speck, kale and sage (I’m not a fan of kale, but in this case it did not detract). For mains I had rainbow trout with bok choy and potatoes (I substituted mashed for fingerlings, a smart choice). Stanley had duck breast with leg confit. The spices and accompaniments were especially good. For dessert we had the coffee custard, which was exceptional.
With wine, tax and tip, the bill came to $193.
