The motto at Robin’s is “handcrafted global cuisine.” That about says it. The lunch and dinner menus include Vietnamese, Peruvian, Indian, Korean, Thai, Japanese and American dishes and more.
Dinner starters include a sensational Vietnamese lumpia, a wonderful Indian spiced lamb and sweet pea phyllo roll, Singapore chicken satay, a nightly sushi offering, and a meza plate of taboulleh, roasted red pepper hummus, tzatziki, feta, Greek olives and whole wheat chips.
For mains there are Korean glazed flat iron steak, grilled sea bass, Peruvian bouillabaisse, pork osso buco, tandoori chicken, lobster enchiladas, and several curries.
The lunch menu includes many of these same items plus a fish taco salad, curry chicken, an Angus burger, a chicken club sandwich, lamb curry burritos and lettuce wraps with pickled shiitake mushrooms, water chestnuts, Vietnamese slaw, toasted peanuts and a sweet chili sauce.
Robin’s has long strived to do this menu well. But through the years there were more misses than hits. The misses never were so bad that we refused to return, but we always felt we were settling when it was dinner at Robin’s.
That’s not the situation any more. The menu has matured as has the quality of the food being served. The smells that greet customers as they walk to their tables are tantalizing, the menu offers choices for virtually any mood, and the food arrives, hot, fresh and delectable.
Robin’s also offers an extensive list of vegetarian and vegan offerings.
