The latest chapter in the colorful history of The Nimrod Restaurant & Jazz Lounge, whose centuries-old houses still feature a cannonball hole from the War of 1812, is written by friendly chef-musicians Jim and Gwyn Murray, who operate the eatery and cook up a gourmet menu of fresh seafood and fine cuisine. Ears soak up a satisfying buffet of live, free-range jazz notes as spoons practice their cannonballs in elegantly simple dishes such as lobster bisque and The Nimrod's signature scallop chowder. A roasted, boneless fillet of salmon, coated in the ocean's own blue-cheese crust, tops plates of the North Atlantic salmon royale. Tasty, tomato-rich harmonies arise from a quartet of shrimp, scallops, littleneck clams, and mussels, which are braised in saffron-, fennel-, and garlic-fortified white wine before they're spooned atop the bouillabaisse's nest of pasta. Disguised on the menu as bittersweet chocolate cake, dense, velvety chocolate custard ends dining excursions by diving into mouths under the double-dog-dare of its cohort, ganache-drizzled vanilla ice cream.
The Nimrod Restaurant & Jazz Lounge
One of the most popular establishments featuring a cannonball hole from the War of 1812, The Nimrod Restaurant & Jazz Lounge serves upscale American cuisine within its historic walls hailing from the 17th and 18th century. Native pine, 16th-century brick fireplaces, and hand-hewn posts and beams surround guests as they feast on delicately prepared dishes, such as citrus shrimp, spinach salad, or stuffed sea scallops, by candlelight atop the elegant dining room’s white tablecloths. They can also take their meals on a screened-in patio adorned with decorative fishing nets. Most nights, as guests sip on a libation plucked from an extensive wine list, they can enjoy live music and tap toes in time to the sounds of a piano or a big band.
