As the locavore culinary winds blow, almost everyone wants to jump on the CSA-style bandwagon. From a modest location here on Kings Highway, Chef Curry Martin and his staff are doing just that, and doing it well. The restaurant has established quite a reputation, so you'll need to call a week or so in advance for a prime time reservation. (Of course, you're also welcome just to move on over to the bar, actually a good place to get started, with a nice range of wine flights). In terms of atmosphere, Aspen Grille is low-key and informal, with an interior distinguished by a nice blend of warm woods (check out the details on the booths) and paintings by local artists. Definitely consult the menu online before coming in for the latest additions, but local oysters are a mainstay, as is the pan-seared flounder and shrimp entrée, with roasted potatoes, okra, corn, and a tomato ragout. A quite affordable prix fixe menu is available Sunday evenings. To set the mood (romantic or otherwise), live music plays Wednesdays through Saturdays.
