Nix’s Mate brings creativity to Hilton menu
The award for most strangely compelling lobster dish of the year goes to Nix’s Mate. Golden nuggets of seafood swim in a caramel sauce, augmented with cheddar and chilies. There is no way this dish should work. Yet, somehow, it’s hard to stop eating. The dish makes it clear that Nix’s Mate is more than just a hotel restaurant for tourists. It has a serious chef, David Nevins, who was previously at Neptune Oyster, Olives, and other Todd English restaurants.
