December 27 | Lido Bottle Works

For as fun and fancy-free as chef Joel Harrington is, his cuisine is seriously thoughtful. Very few can plate with that kind of attention to detail; even fewer will put together ingredients that harmonize like an a capella group. A basic gem salad is upgraded with ricotta salata and polenta croutons, making it just as worthy of ordering as the hearty carbonara. The dining room is my preferred spot in Lido Marina Village for its chill vibe and agreeable drink selection, but this locavore menu is what I keep returning for.
