The following is a Daily News promotional feature review, I hope you enjoy it.
We framed this copy which now hangs in the restaurant.
Some restaurants are so place-specific, they can only exist an a boat. They have a unique style that would never play in Dubuque. It doesn’t
matter what kind of food they serve, they are river restaurants above and beyond their ethnic origin.
What makes them only? For some its architecture, for others a neighborhood history. It can be a signature group of regular patrons, or an owner that serves up the food with a peppery personality. Here are just a few uniquely spots. Moores Riverboat Restaurant is an authentic restaurant, but that’s beside the point. More realistically, it’s a genuine Village restaurant.
Soaking up the Village atmosphere is just the beginning. The Spanish and Mexican cuisine is to be savored and remembered, too. This is lobster season, so don’t forget to take advantage of such specials as big-boy single lobsters or the smaller twin lobster platters.
Begin with such appetizers as Mussels Vinaigrette ($5.25), Galician Octopus ($6.25), soul-warming Black Bean Soup ($3.25) or the Cafe` Español salad of green peppers, onion, lettuce, tomato, asparagus, olives and Spanish sausage ($5.25).
Seafood is one of the notable elements of Spanish cuisine. Try the Paella Valenciana with chicken, sausages and seafood ($13.95), Mixed Seafood in Green Sauce ($16.50) and the House Special Shrimp ($13.25). If you prefer meat and poultry, there is veal Extremena with onions, peppers, and sausage ($13.95) Chicken in Garlic Sauce ($11.50) or Chicken Riojana sautéed with Peppers, Onions, Tomatoes and Wine ($11.50).
For dessert, sample cheesecake ($3.95), flan ($2.50) and ice cream ($3.00).
