I ordered a dozen raw oysters. They brought a dozen ranging from the fairly big to the ridiculously small. Just a dozen and only a dozen. The small ones should have been counted as one quarter and an at least a baker's dozen brought out. As you can see I ate most of them before I thought to take a picture. They were nice and briny.
The bread pudding was the ground bread type with some sweet spices and coconut in a not too alcoholic rum sauce. I enjoyed it for the most part. Again one of my peculiarities. I like the flavor of coconut but do not care for the texture of coconut flakes. But this one was good enough to overlook that. I especially like the rum sauce. A lot of places put too much alcohol in their sauce. This in my opinion ruins the taste because all I taste is the raw alcohol
The best thing here I got I can not take a picture of. It was the finest service I have had in a long time in this city. Jim was perfect. I was virtually the only person in the dining room. These days the server would have put everything I ordered to the kitchen and brought it out all at once so they could go smoke or do whatever they do when they should be watching out for the customer. Jim was attentive but not overly so. Friendly but again not overly so. The courses came out in a timely manner with virtually no overlaps. Jim made some adjustments based on what I ordered and the time the kitchen would take to perform it. Also dessert was suggested instead of the ticket just appearing after the main course. The man knows how to build a tip and he got a generous one from me. I did appreciate it and told him so.
