5/2/10-Time Out Taverne, Durham, CT

What a beautiful afternoon! Tom and I went out on the bike for a while and he decided to be spontaneous and stop here for dinner. We sat outside on the patio for dinner and it was a beautiful evening to be dining outside--I wish we could more often!

The menu had a large seafood selection, with all of the evenings specials being seafood based. The also had steaks ($19-$29), chicken and pastas. Tom decided on clams over linguine with a white wine garlic broth--his go-to seafood dish and he enjoyed it. My interested wasn't sparked by much on the menu (and I wasn't looking to spend that kind of money on a steak) so I went with the Cobb salad and it was actually the perfect decision. The creamy balsamic dressing over the greens with walnuts, bacon, grilled chicken and avocado really made for a light, refreshing meal.

In all, service was prompt and efficient but not exactly friendly (but Jay the bartender is awesome!). I think that the prices on some of the dishes was a bit high but there aren't many dining choices in this area. We both enjoyed our evening and if we're hungry in the area again, I'd say we'd come back.
