Feature: Lost at Sea (West End)

Last week, we had the chance to check out Lost at Sea – a nautical spin-off of the local favorite, Lost and Found. While the unmarked restaurant at 888 Beech St may be tough to spot, word is definitely beginning to spread about this treat. Lost at Sea does not take advanced reservations and seats guests on a first-come, first-serve basis. Unfortunately for us, that meant we had to wait about an hour… but let me tell you, it was worth it…

While waiting for our table, we got to try some of mixologist Steve Magliano’s delicious concoctions. The Pina Colada had to be one of the best we’ve ever tasted (and the woman next to us said the same). ‘Kind of Blue’ was equally delicious and watching Steve make the drinks was a treat in and of itself.

The restaurant has a warm and cozy feel with nautical decor. Chef Alexis Trolf’s menu is divided into raw, cold, and hot sections and you can’t go wrong with any of them. The waitress recommended we share 3 or 4 plates and 3 was more than filling for the two of us. We got to try the seafood stew, traditional baked clams, steak, and a side of frites. The stew was filled with tasty crab/scallops/lobster/you-name-it, the clams were absolutely mouth-watering, and the steak was cooked to a tender perfection. The staff was friendly throughout the night and we were two of many customers that got to really take our time, relax, and enjoy a phenomenal meal. Needless to say… we will be back!
