Well when is a wait a wait? When at 5 they say table at 7? Not when they agree to call you cell and you have a crisp clear day to have a lemonade at the rear of Fairway and you can read the Times or your kindle at a waterfront park or sit in the downstairs and have a beer (or soon play mini golf or ping pong) and some oysters....not when they call you earlier than promised and whisk you to a waiting Rebecca from Cobble Hill recently returned from college in Tampa...not when you have a glass of wine immediately and later a great sunset behind the Statue of Liberty and snow peas baked with parm and a grand view. Then there are the steamed pots with crab,corn,potatoes and corn and lobster
or for the vegi gardener artichokes...the vegi pot could have been more flavorful, but generally all good. Hot sauces everywhere in peg holes or rails...however most of these work better with meat than shell fish, which could benefit from plain Tabasco which they must have...and the cocktail sauce was a little thick for my taste, But generally tuta bene...even deserts looked good. And it is not a wait when at 9 you shop in Fairway and @9:45 fireworks crack from Ellis Island. If you are not too tired you go to Sunny's for the jam but that doesn't get goin til 11ish and that ,that, that was too long a wait ...this time.
