Q-tips say: NOTE:    Be aware that one of Duval’s food  prep. staff tested positive for  Hep A.  If you dined there early May till May 10th, consult with your Dr. if you should have the Hep A test/shot.

 We did enjoy the ambiance, food and service.  Mrs. Q had: shared  the Wedge salad.  Then had the Salmon  Carpaccio -Smoked salmon pastrami, drizzled with Dijon aioli, and finished with spinach, capers, pickled red onion, and cracked black pepper. Served with Parmesan Crostinis.   Our long time friend had Garden Fresh Gazpacho -Chilled Mediterranean style soup with tomato, cucumber, onion, garlic, and Crème Fraiche & Ocean Scampi -1/2 Lobster tail, shrimp, grape tomatoes, and linguini tossed in a white wine, lemon, garlic butter sauce.  Mr. Q had one of the “fish specials” blackened w/ potatoes and relish.  Warm crusty bread & butter along with great “Happy Hour” drinks/wine made us happy and willing to return. Dining with good friends makes the meals enjoyable for all.
