R & G lounge was recommended to us by a local merchant. We were not disappointed. The salt & pepper callimari was outstanding! Didn't need any tarter sauce or lemon, so flavorful.

The food is fresh. The service is fast. Ask for things if you don't see them on the menu like a steamed whole rock cod.
