Reviews of Reel Cafe posted on 01/18/2009

Itís been awhile, but I finally went to a restaurant and ordered Chicken Marsala. This used to be my method of measuring one restaurant against another, and somehow, I think I got burned out on this seemingly simple dish. I resisted the urge to order it last night at Caffť Phoenix, but I shall go back and report on how they compare to the Chicken Marsala I just had at The Reel Cafť, located on the corners of Dock and Front Street in Wilmington, NC, which is one of those things that you WISH would make you have a Phantom Poop.<br /> <br /> But letís start off with what I ate first, which was the Guinness Beef Stew. Or shall I say Campbellís Thick and Chunky. There may have been a tablespoon of Guinness mixed in, but I wasnít sure.<br /> <br /> So anyway, I really, really love mushrooms. Like a hobbit loves mushrooms. And second breakfast. I donít know how this happened, since theyíre so weird and, well, fungified, but I love them. So I say, ďLetís see if we get a variety of mushrooms, or if weíre gonna get plain button mushrooms.Ē I think I got ONE plain button mushroom, thinly sliced, to make me think I had more than one mushroom. Doused in about a quarter cup of ďMarsalaĒ sauce. Iím pretty sure it came out of a package. Iím not sure there was any Marsala wine in the sauce at all. They didnít even cheat and use Sherry. I should have used the $4 I spent to upgrade from Grilled Chicken to Chicken Marsala to instead buy another margarita, because you canít mess those up. And when the Chicken Marsala revisted me for the next twelve hours, I could have at least blamed it on the tequila.

The blackened salmon with fettucini alfredo was the chef's special and was excellent! Perhaps my best dining experience ever! It ws perhaps a bit loud due to sports TV but the dining made up for even that. Highly recommend visiting them!
