Thursday night I stopped in for a late dinner - it was after 10pm and long after most places have closed their kitchen. At best I expected a limited menu of appetizers and fried somethings...so I was surprised when the bartender handed me the full menu. I tried a thing I hadn't had before - shrimp and scallop medley over linguine.
OMG. It was perfectly prepared, seasoned perfectly - I usually load up anything I eat with tabasco, texas pete's or sriracha - depending on what's available...this thing needed none of it. I wish I'd taken a photo. Words might not do it justice. Jumbo shrimp, right-sized scallops, artichoke hearts, and I know they're supposed to be played out but ... sundried tomatoes. They worked really well in this dish. And $21 - for a plate that in some places a little further north would have been closer to $30...what's not to like.
I appreciate Lefty's a little more everytime I stop by. Best burgers in the area by far, and their Manhattan chowder is stellar as well. Not to mention the super-friendly and professional service whether you're at the bar or a table.
