Sea Pearl Pt 2

Earlier this year I wrote about a restaurant called Sea Pearl, mostly in regards to their brunch.  That review was pretty positive.  I've been back a few more times for lunch with more mediocre results.

This lobster roll was pretty decent, but not my favorite in the area.  It's very herby, which isn't bad - I just don't prefer it personally.  I would say that Coastal Flats has better.  Also, though the garlic rosemary fries were good, I wasn't a fan of the boring side salad that came with.

This burger was pretty good with the caramelized and pickled onions.  But the foie gras was unnecessary.  I can't believe I'm saying that because it was the main reason I ordered the burger, but it just felt like it didn't belong (unlike the stellar version at Mockingbird Bistro in Houston, TX).

Lastly, the Hudson Valley roll was a huge flop.  Seared foie gras, raw tuna, and green apple with a balsamic plum wine reduction.  This just didn't work, and the foie had a weird bitter taste.  I noticed it on the burger, too, so however they are cooking their foie here is no good.

I think I'm going to be sticking to brunch for awhile.
