Since 1946, Norwood’s Restaurant and Wine Shop has complemented fresh-caught seafood and aged Angus beef entrees with a well-stocked cache of fine wines and drinks. While basking in spacious dining environs that feature rustic wood architecture, diners cure deep-sea cravings with fish dishes that permit a choice of seven different preparations: salmon fillets dressed in mango-salsa disguises ($20) can have their cover blown by prying forks, and hog snapper might get infused with the sweet slathering of a pineapple chutney ($25). The staff serves fish entrees alongside yukon-gold mashed potatoes and a vegetable medley. Diners on a strict pasta-only diet, or in need of an object soft enough to preclude serious repercussions after throwing it at a vice principal, can enjoy the supple shrimp-and-scallop alfredo ($18.50).
Norwood’s mirrored mezzanine area offers intimate booths, and the east dining area’s high ceilings and sleek paneling that juts out at right angles add hints of modern ambience. A selection of craft beers that include Hoegaarden ($4) and Magic Hat ($7) can keep both friendly conversation and hops-powered time-traveling helmets well lubricated.
