Definitely order from the menu addendum, where four entrees-including two steaks, the pork chop and the seabass-are listed in a separate scrap of paper. The seabass might just be the best seafood dish on a street that also includes the beloved Walt's Wharf. The first bite has the pleasurable crackle when a piece of fish is properly cauterized to crispness in a hot pan. Everything else on the plate was just as indispensable, from the soft, homey goodness of the puree cauliflower that became the textural foil to the acid of the tarragon-roasted tomatoes and wilted spinach that balanced the richness. Sandwiches like the meat loaf and the grilled cheese with short rib read as if they're actually entrées stuffed between bread.
