Hart's Berry Spring Salad with ShrimpHart's Berry Spring Salad with Shrimp

For Strawberry Month, we had to try their Berry Spring Salad with Shrimp. This refreshing dish featured a perfect balance of fresh flavors and textures, topped with a strawberry-persimmon dressing and even edible flowers. It was almost too pretty to eat… almost.

As someone who’s had their fair share of fish & chips, Hart’s has some of the best I’ve had in a long time. The fish was buttery and perfectly fried, while the “chips” were a unique fusion of something between a French fry and a potato wedge. Perfectly seasoned and deliciously crisp, the smoky onion tartar on the side was the perfect creamy complement.

 💡 TIP: If you happen to visit on a Tuesday, be sure to take advantage of their Cheesesteak Tuesday special – it’s pure comfort food heaven.

Poké meaning “to slice” or “cut in pieces”, is a native Hawaiian dish traditionally made with bites of marinated raw fish similar to the tartare you’d find on a sushi menu. And while delicious, the poké at Moku goes beyond the raw tuna and salmon bowls. You can also opt for cooked protein options like chicken or marinated tofu.

Don’t miss their Asian style dumplings made with veggies and spices like ginger, garlic, sweet onions, cabbage, and mushrooms and served with a Moku Bowl’s special dumpling sauce for dipping! Choose between their vegan-friendly veggie dumpling or chicken.

These are made with a yogurt or fruit base, like acai or pitaya (dragon fruit), and then topped off with treats like strawberries, bananas, coconut granola, and drizzled with honey, almond butter, peanut butter or Nutella. Yum! Like the other bowls here, you can choose from their ‘Sunshine Favorites’ or build your own.

A style of Belgian waffle, these waffles are made from a brioche-style yeast dough instead of a batter. What makes them unique is that before being pressed, they’re sprinkled with pearl sugar, making them dense and chewy with a slight sugary crunch on the outside. They really are a yummy treat.

You can try a freshly made Liege waffle at Nina’s on its own, but do yourself a favor and top it with a scoop or two of Nina’s incredible small-batch ice cream offered in a variety of flavors. Our all-time favorite flavor is ‘Mad Crack’ made with Madagascar vanilla ice cream, chunks of saltine cracker brittle, bits of toffee, and chocolate. For a strawberry-inspired treat, try their strawberry ice cream topped with whipped cream and chocolate ganache.

This time, we started with their new Little Neck Clams cooked in white wine, garlic, shallot, thyme, and served with toasted ciabatta. This was a generous portion of clams, each one fresh and bursting with flavor. The mix of garlic, shallot, and thyme smelled incredible and the toasted ciabatta was the perfect vessel for soaking up every last drop of that yummy broth.

Their Caesar Salad made with romaine hearts, lemon, garlic, and white anchovies is exceptional and their creamy She-Crab soup served with a house-made cracker never disappoints. For an appetizer, their Meatballs over Creamy Polenta are comfort food at its finest.

On a recent visit, we ordered up a dozen of their fresh oysters on the half shell to enjoy on their lovely outdoor patio, which paired perfectly with their Strawberry Sangria on special. The oysters were so delicious we went back for another round the following day. If oysters aren’t your thing, Earl’s also offers clams on the half shell and shrimp cocktail. For dinner, the Pan-Seared Scallops served with a quinoa and mushroom ragout, corn porridge and candied bacon are truly outstanding.
