A stand-alone bite of next week's Cafe review:
Lobster peanut butter & jelly sandwich jolted to signature status right from the start; no doubt curiosity plays a role in so many diners ordering it (that was my impetus). Four triangular sandwich quarters of toasted, crust-less brioche are filled with pieces of poached lobster between a thin veneer of sweet, caramelized onion marmalade and a fairly thick spread of coarsely ground, chili-spiced peanut butter. If this works at all, it would be as a stand-alone bite to down with a drink, but for my money it does not work at all (and that money, incidentally, is $17); peanut butter obliterates the delicate crustacean. Dewey LoSasso is a chef who rarely errs on the side of too little flavor.
