Sneak Review: Route 9

Just a short stretch of Route 9's Cafe review coming up next week:

Proteins on entree plates were nicely executed: A small wedge of salmon steak and cylinder of prosciutto-wrapped pork loin both boasted crisp exteriors and were moist and impeccably cooked within; flank steak, cut into thick strips, was flavorful. Accompaniments on each plate were wanting. Steak came with two long, skinny hearts of romaine lettuce grilled and lightly dressed with blue cheese (meh); five little cippolini onions were served alongside the pork (less than meh); salmon rested upon a bed of bland, soggy, overcooked cous cous (awful).
