There will be no more singing the song “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” since I finally found the Sea Bass I’ve been longing for, at The Grill on Main in LaQuinta. Chef Jeff Dossantos grilled the Chilean fish with the skin on and just the perfect combination of seasoning to satisfy my tastebuds. It was moist and juicy, not dry. I could go on forever about it but there’s much more to talk about.
Let’s start with the casual yet classy and very comfortable vibe the restaurant has. Much of this can be attributed to the staff and our qualified server, Annie, who recommended I try a glass of the Educated Guess Cabernet for $14. They offer several wines by the glass and I was having a hard time deciding, but she got it right. My husband was impressed with their beer on tap selection along with their micro/craft beer choices.
We decided on the Main Street Wedge salad for our starter and were both pleased that it was one of the best in town, which was attributed to the Applewood Smoked Bacon and special Bleu Cheese dressing they use.
My husband chose the 14 oz. New York Steak served with mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus, all which were devoured with a smile and barely a word. You know the food is good when we both just shut up and eat.
For dessert we enjoyed the delicious cheesecake with fresh raspberries and strawberries accompanied by an after dinner Grand Marnier.
During our meal we had been discussing at great length their signature drink, the Bacon Vodka Bloody Mary, which is a concoction of Housemade Bacon-Infused Vodka, loaded Bloody Mary mix, cherry tomatoes and a wedge of Romaine lettuce with Celery salt & Bacon rim, topped with a crisp slice of Applewood Bacon. As soon as we finished dessert the manager brought one over for us to try. As full as we were we had to partake. Grill on Main hands down has the best Bloody Mary around. You must stop in and try one or if you’re a non-drinker try their BLT, which I hear is also amazing. You can catch us there this weekend checking out the brunch menu (Sat. & Sun. 10am-2pm). Hours are: Mon.-Thurs. 11am-9pm. Friday 11am-11pm. Saturday 10am-11pm and Sunday 10am-9pm. Live music every Fri. & Sat. night 8pm-11pm.
