Some things at Muse never change, like the crispy sea bass, a whole deboned fish that’s lightly fried until the skin is crisp and golden. Or the grilled duck breast rubbed with tart sumac and the merguez sausage with red peppers, fennel, and radish. But the catch of the day — grouper, golden tilefish, wreckfish — keeps things moving forward, combining the freshest local fish with bright Mediterranean accents. The bouillabaise steeps shrimp, mussels, scallops, and fish in a rich saffron and wine sauce, while heartier plates pair grilled lamb chops with dried figs and lemon puree and a 13-ounce ribeye with fennel gratin. With dozens of good selections by the glass, Muse’s wine list is among the most comprehensive in town. Whether you snag an outdoor table in the small courtyard, a cozy seat in one of the small dining rooms, or a stool at the wine bar in the front room, you’re bound to have a pleasant Mediterranean journey. —Robert Moss Dish (Winter 2015)
