Tisha’s Fine Dining is situated on the beach in Cape May, NJ. It’s a popular BYOB in a town with more than it’s share of restaurants.
The four of us drove down from Avalon and were fortunate to find a good parking spot out front. Parking is at a premium in this shore town so it was no small feat to find a spot so close. JoAnn was making her fourth visit to Tisha’s , but for the rest of us, it was our first. There was quite an ocean breeze blowing through the open doors and windows of this beachfront bistro at our first table and although it felt good it was a little strong to be dining in the midst of gale force winds so we requested and were granted another table more sheltered from the elements. This being our final meal of the vacation we were armed with the best of our wines. We once again had the Franciscan “Magnificat”, another bottle of the 2004 Shirvington Shiraz and a 2006 Mollydooker, “Enchanted Path” a shiraz/cab blend that was absolutely delicious.
I can’t remember what others may have had for an appetizer but that’s only because I was completely blown away by my lobster risotto. It was smooth, creamy, flavorful and I found myself wishing it was my entree instead of a starter. Actually, my pork entree was very good served over creamy mashed potatoes and asparagus. The others in our group had the Veal Tenderloin, Sauteed Scallops and Putanesca w/shrimp.
