QUICK BITE: Fried Broccoli at Ella’s
Posted by Gina and The Big Dog in Good Wine/Beer Selection, Quick Bites, Romantic Dining on January 30, 2022
“Broccoli” and “deliciously decadent” in one sentence? Let Ella’s Wood Burning Oven Restaurant make you a believer! This appetizer is a majestic mound of broccoli, fried in a very light batter to a crispy crunch, in a tangy pool of aioli, dusted with parmesan. At just $13, it’s a delicious treat.
QUICK BITES: Sushi at Fishermen’s View
Posted by Gina and The Big Dog in Dining with a Great View, Quick Bites, Seafood Restaurants on December 27, 2021
Remember when sushi used to be exotic and just a little bit scary? Nowadays, even the ichthyophobics among us can find something that feels safe on the sushi menu, and you can buy a California roll at the local supermarket.
But you don’t have to. You can buy your California roll ($17) at the Fishermen’s View in Sandwich, where the crab comes off the boat just a few feet away from your table. And it’s real Jonah crab, not the crab “sticks” you get elsewhere.

Posted by Gina and The Big Dog in Quick Bites on November 18, 2021
Alden Park has an adorable, elegant, and inexpensive solution for those of us who didn’t save room for dessert but want something more than a fistful of mints on the way out the door: Small Bites.
For just $2, you get your choice of seven desserts served with tiny spoons in a shotglass. On a recent visit, we chose Mandarin Orange and Chocolate Cake. Delicious and fun! It’s a great way to end a meal, or a fun accompaniment to cocktails.
