A typical meal may start out with appetizer specialties such as grilled, fresh sardines with olive tapenade or roasted, organic sweet potato with goat cheese, pomegranate and apple cider. Main dish highlights include grilled lobster on linguine, butter and garlic; blackened swordfish, or broiled Atlantic char.
