Romantic Dining, Italian: Named for the creek it rests beside, this fantastic restaurant is influenced by Italian cuisine, although it's not the red-sauce-and-cheese variety. Instead, dishes are more refined, featuring first-rate ingredients and careful preparation. Among the offerings you'll find are silky foie gras, sweetbreads in marsala sauce, seared yellowfin tuna and bacon-wrapped roasted rabbit. Accompanying them are such delicacies as fava beans, polenta, asparagus, artichokes, and a medley of earthy mushrooms. Desserts follow suit and include several Italian classics: tiramisu, panna cotta, and berries laced with balsamic vinegar. The excellent wine list offers a perfect accompaniment, whether it be an Italian or a regional vintage.
