This afternoon we headed over to Yaga's with the pup. The outdoor tables were all full, so we walked down a block or so to Shark Shack. We had been there before during restaurant week for dinner. They had only a few outdoor tables and they were empty, so we made ourselves comfortable and people watched. If not for the competing music from the restaurant, and the bar a few yards down, and the bar across the street, sitting outside would have been a more pleasurable experience.
Our waitress showed up immediately and quickly brought water for Heidi and tea for us. I decided on their Coconut Encrusted Shrimp with pineapple plum sauce & fries. The coconut crust thickly coated small shrimp that was cooked to oblivian. The crust had a good flavor, as did the sauce, but it was cooked so long it had hardened and had a very unpleasant mouth feel. The fries were good and plentiful. Jeff had the Shrimp Po-Boy which was beautifully cooked and presented. He did complain they gave me a larger portion of fries! Our waitress came out and asked about dessert...my favorite. I asked what they had and she got us a menu. I honed in on the Warm Brownie Delight and requested it to-go. She gave me about four portions of brownie (with a more cake-like texture) and a huge container of really creamy vanilla ice cream. The caramel and chocolate sauces and candied walnuts did not make it in our to-go bag; they were missed on this dessert.
Overall, we had a good experience at Shark Shack. It's prime location and pet-friendly attitude make it ideal for us.
