always a pleasurable experience to dine at Anthony’s, where fine Italian
cuisine is accompanied by fine wines including some wines from the

our server, Fabio, listed the many specials of the day, he made each one
sound so tempting that we were hard put to choose just one. Over a glass
of Compari we decided to share a special seafood appetizer which included
crab meat, shrimp and lobster tail served with a tangy dipping sauce
($13). Specials of the day are really specials so you can’t go wrong
ordering them without agonizing over selecting from the many offerings on
our entrée we again stuck with the specials of the day. One entrée was
the Filet of Monk Fish with a champagne sauce surrounded by sliced
strawberries and hot white grapes on a
artistically painted platter ($17.95). The accompanying side dish
was fresh, whole beans and garlic-flavored new potatoes.
other selection from the specials of the day was a long time favorite of
this writer – Osso Bucco served with a choice of pasta or rice (our
choice). The portion was enormous but the special feature was the
easy-to-get sweet marrow that was dug out and smeared on fresh warm bread.
An excellent dish! Our compliments to the chef.
