Named Best New Restaurant in 2010 by Alibi, CoolWater puts a spin on traditional recipes with a menu full of creative flavors and plating techniques, leading to American-inspired dishes nuanced by French & Italian flavors. Diners launch eating expeditions with meal starters such as blue-corn-crusted onion rings that plunge into a spicy ranch ocean with green-chili buoys, or salmon and crab cakes drizzled with a warm-butter emulsion.
For the main course, Alibi recommends CoolWater’s “scrumptious” boneless short ribs, which braise their protein with a mix of red wine, chilies, and plums. Chicken parmesan glides to dinner tables alongside fettucine tossed in marinara sauce, and whole rainbow trout conceals its hidden pot of gold with a center of crabmeat stuffing and a wrapping of sizzling bacon.
Five sandwich plates lead lunch selections, including the Cuban with its braised pork and melted swiss, as well as a quiche of the day. Under-the-sea treats sate oceanic hankerings with selections such as fish tacos and London-style fish and chips, a tilapia battered in the English tabloids but comforted by red-cabbage coleslaw and house-made potato chips.
