This upscale eatery specializes in seafood, but the tender steaks and extensive wine list have won fans of their own.. The Scene The owner might have begun his restaurant career with a degree in "Hamburgerology" from McDonald's University, but all that's remained from those days is prompt service. White linen covers the tables both inside the large dining room and outside on the seasonal patio. The decor is simple but elegant, as are the food presentations.
The Food The appetizers are so good, entrees may go untouched. The house crab cakes are lump crab meat encased in a golden crust of potato strings. Fried lobster tails are light without a trace of grease. All fish selections can be poached, broiled or blackened at your request, but servers can suggest the best cooking method. The steaks are as good as the seafood, with a buttery consistency that'll melt in your mouth.
Carmen Anthony in Avon continues to be one of the area's premier restaurants. The level of service matches any great restaurant in the country. It is truly 5 Star! The steaks are very good, but it is the creative seafood that stands out here. The fish is always fresh and prepared several different ways to order. The salads are great and innovative.
