Several sides are steakhouse fries, garlic mashed potatoes, risotto-style orzo pasta and sauteed mushrooms. Popular appetizers are calamari, stuffed mushrooms, New England crab cakes and oysters Rockefeller. There are soups (lobster bisque, French onion), salads (wedge, Caesar, chopped) and desserts, including bananas Foster, New York cheesecake, flourless chocolate cake and after-dinner coffees such as Keoke and Monte Cristo (Kahlua, Grand Marnier, whipped cream).
