The Artisan Restaurant in the Delamar Hotel in Southport, CT is a find!
We began with a mostly-crab cake (as it should be) in a swirl of delicate carrot-ginger puree, garnished with a lightly dressed salad ($15). The photo shows only half a portion, as we shared!
The feathery light goat cheese gnocci in a rich lamb bolognese was topped with creamy whipped ricotta garnished with fresh mint. The over-generous half-order ($16) is more than filling enough. Although the menu mentioned wilted arugula, that was lacking … my only complaint of this otherwise fabulous dish that I recommend.
My dining partner enjoy twin Maine lobster rolls on brioche, served with crispy fries and refreshing cole slaw ($17). These lobster rolls were CT- (with butter) rather than Maine-style (chilled with mayo).
What we ate was so filling that neither of us had room for try dessert. Another reason to return to this recommended hotel restaurant.
