A few months ago we went to a new risotteria in NYC to sample some delicious risottos from a renowned rice grower from Verona. Some hits, some misses, and none came close to the risotto bliss of this lobster shiitake goodness at Seaside. This was one of the most palatable risotto we’ve ever eaten. Cheesy, well spiced, perfectly cooked arborio with tender, plentiful chunks of lobster and a lot of love.

The Escolar (aka “White Tuna” but not really) was another outstanding dish. Another South Caicos beauty cooked expertly medium rare with jasmine rice, veggies, sweet wasabi mustard on one side and some sort of miso sauce on the other.

Tuna Sashimi with Wasabi mustard (top) – A revelation! Long time followers of Ziggy know how much I love a similar dish at Coco Bistro and it turns out that that was a Francois creation. Fresh tuna from south Caicos, veggies, that wasabi again, and just a glorious concoction on individual tortillas.

Peruvian conch ceviche. Yet more awesomeness. A fantastic combination of veggies (love his use of fresh veggies), fresh conch, lime and different peppers including scotch bonnet. Addictive stuff to say the least.
