Terry Weber Reports- Dining at Duckworth Bistro

Enjoyed my first dinner at Duckworth’s Bistro this week, and it lived up to its reputation. In fact, after tasting one bite of the food, I completely forgot to take pictures of the appetizers before I completely devoured them (see picture of the remains of the mushroom soup). Believe me, I would have licked the plates if I didn’t think my dinner partner would be appalled :).

The service was sweet–Colleen our waitress was genuinely friendly, gracious and made our meal even better. About our meal, we shared a couple of appetizers: Creamy Mushroom Soup, Caesar Salad and Zucchini Fritters. The mushroom soup was a deep grey which I was not accustomed to, but it was the best mushroom soup I’ve ever had with a rich, earthy flavor. Jackie said her steak was perfectly cooked and delicious. The leg of lamb I had for an entree was tender, cooked exactly as I requested, and came with the freshest tasting mix of Lima and green beans.

Speaking of the beans, Colleen explained their great taste by telling us the beans came from a local Gloucester farm. Duckworth’s buys many of their ingredients at local farms including the Beacon Street Farm in Gloucester; Green Meadows Farm in Hamilton, and of course their lobsters are from Captain Joe & Sons. It was a great first time dining experience! We would have had dessert but we were too stuffed!

It should be noted that Terry took these photos in the very low light conditions of the kitchen at Duckworth’s with the camera I recommended- The Canon Powershot s95. No flash and very natural looking photos! Excellent Terry!
