Adventure Down to the Atlantic Grill

My mom took me to the Atlantic Grill for a special goodbye lunch. I know it’s a little early as I leave on Sunday, but the weather was glorious and I’ve been wanting to try the Atlantic Grill for a long time. All of the food was delicious, so I was definitely not disappointed.

Our waiter brought us some delicious warm bread with butter. You can probably surmise that I was happy from the start. But bringing us three rolls? Come on, both my mom and I eat a lot of bread – no exaggeration. My mom said she didn’t want a second piece of bread, so I hopped on that very quickly.

My mom and I are very similar people (beside the fact that she is practically one foot shorter than I am), so it wasn’t surprising that we ordered the same dishes. We both started with maki rolls filled with salmon, avocado, pickled jicama and crunchy tempura pieces. These rolls were amazing and definitely the highlight of my meal. I loved the contrast of textures – the buttery avocado chunks and smooth salmon with the crunchy jicama and tempura pieces.

After the maki rolls, we had crusted yellow snapper with a cool yogurt sauce and tabouli salad. The snapper was grilled to perfection, and I loved the brightness and freshness of the salad which had slices of grapefruit, fennel, cucumber, almonds, and radishes.

Dessert was a chocolate torte with cherry compote and vanilla bean ice cream. Though generally dessert is my favorite part of a meal, in this instance, it was my least favorite. I am not saying that I didn’t like the dessert. In fact, I liked it very much, but it was a little to sweet for me with the dried cherries. Regardless, my meal was delicious!

Thanks again mom! I will miss you.

      Yes, I am so grateful to her. The maki roll was superb! I would never have thought to put jicama in a roll.
