We were a bit sad to hear that Sel de la Terre on the waterfront was closing. However, when a team from the Cape, including chef Bill Brodsky, explained their concept of bringing delicious Cape food and a sophisticated/casual dining atmosphere to the space, I think people were intrigued. I recently had the opportunity to pick a location for a Junior League prep meeting and thought it was the perfect opportunity to check out City Landing, especially since it had opened just a few days prior. I was excited to give the new space a go.
The interior has been constructed with a lighter, easy feel. The dominating green color reflected the feeling the the architects were trying to convey. We were seated by the window (for a lovely view of the rainy evening!) and while we got caught up, we looked over the menu and tried to make some decisions.
After debating a few items, I decided to go with the Hoisin Barbecue Rare Tuna with baby bok choy, sticky rice cake and a dashy soy broth. When the plate arrived at the table I knew I had made a good decision - the presentation alone was beautiful! The tuna was seared perfectly and the hoisin sauce was flavorful without being overwhelming. The bok choy and sticky rice were a nice contrast in texture and taste to the fish. Overall the plate was balanced and something I would not hesitate to order again.

I was impressed with City Landing, especially since the restaurant opened only a few days beforehand. The service and the food was delicious. I am excited to go back to City Landing to see what else they have in store.
