We were looking for a nice place for dinner in Rehoboth and my friend told me about Cafe Zeus. Like many restaurants in Rehoboth, Cafe Zeus resides in a cute Victorian house. The space is great -- cozy rooms and a large terrace where we sat and were serenaded by Nikki Lee, soul singer, while lesbian couples slow danced. It was all very Rehoboth.
I thought Duncan and I ordered the best thing on the menu that night, New Zealand lamb chops (above), encrusted with cumin and cooked a perfect medium rare.
Both redneckhunter and 1000yregg had ordered veal. 1000yregg had his made "Oscar" style, with crabmeat on top. Unfortunately we had just been to the Crabcake Factory the night before and you just can't beat the lump crab from there...
I loved my lamb - it was so good, I wanted to reach over and gnaw on the bones from Duncan's plate!!
Everything else there was just ok though. We had a baked brie appetizer, and for dessert, 1000yregg got profiteroles (which always make me think of testicles - there's a story behind that), and redneckhunter and I got truffles that were just a bit too rich...
