I met a friend out for dinner last night. Initially I was in the mood for deep-fried goodness, so we ventured to D’s Six Pax and Dogz. Unfortunately, D’s doesn’t serve food after 10pm on the weekends. Luckily, The Map Room was open, and the kitchen was still making food.

We sat down and were greeted by our friendly waiter. While we continued to search for an entrée we ordered fried zucchini and crab cakes. We were also served some tasty local beers- delicious!

Our appetizers came in 10 minutes, and we quickly dug in. The zucchini was perfectly fresh, and hand breaded. A tasty dipping sauce was a nice accompaniment for the crispy veggies. Homemade crab cakes were equally as good. Large chunks of sweet crab, breadcrumbs, and egg bound the sautéed cakes together. A mild tartar sauce complimented the pronounced flavor of the dish.

House salads came before our entrees. Fresh greens, ripe cherry tomatoes, large slices of red onion, fresh (homemade) croutons, and herbs made for a flavorsome mixture. The homemade blue cheese dressing was sweet, and creamy.

Entrée were next. I chose the fish and chips. Large portions of fresh fish were served with hand-cut fries. Rich beer batter coated the perfectly cooked, golden brown fish. The fries were crispy, and well seasoned. My dinner mates chose risotto, and pasta with mushrooms with veggies- both dishes were delicious.

The food at the Map Room is sophisticated, and enjoyable. The prices are moderate for the area. If you’re looking for a new spot to enjoy some well-prepared food, give the Map Room a try.

    Hi Chuck,
    After reading your review, I kept thinking that I’d see you around the neighborhood to say, “Thanks”.
    New Years inspire us to tend to things neglected (although, often in February we get caught up in present issues); so, “Thanks”.
    If you have a chance to stop by again, I’d like to catch up. It sounds like you’ve found your niche!
    Be well, Marjie.
