TWK Winchester

The Waterfield Kitchen in Winchester is part of the Serenitee group of restaurants (about 8 currently) and opened this year in Winchester. This seems to be a terrible location since I have seen numerous restaurant perish here. I hope these guys are doing better, especially after today's delightful visit.

I had the presence of mind to sign up for their rewards program and that gets me a free appetizer and this month's special members reward was a free Maki roll from TWK. Parking in the center can be iffy and to complicate things, today was trick and treat day in Winchester, so the center was filled with all kinds of strange creatures,

The inside is very pleasant with windows seating to the right and booth seating to the left.

The lower level now contains a big bar and high tops next to the windows.

The free maki ended up being the KOBE MAKI ($21). "Shrimp tempura, avocado, cucumber and crab meat, topped with lightly torched kobe beef sashimi, scallions, and house sweet & spicy sauce." It was humungous, the biggest maki I have ever seen, but was really delicious and the beef was excellent. What a treat!

I decided to go for appetizers since I knew that there would be a lot of food. The SALMON TATAKI ($16) was lightly seared, with house ponzu sauce. Top notch quality on the salmon and the sauce was excellent.

Next was the FRIED CALAMARI ($13) with shishito peppers and sambal aioli. If you think the calamari was overcooked, you were right and it was also stone cold, so back it went.

The second version was perfectly cooked and piping hot and really delicious. I love the shishito peppers, not too spicy and the aioli had a bit of a kick. It took a while for the food to arrive but overall it was a very pleasant meal. I was very pleased that they took the expensive appetizer off the bill and not the cheapest one. That's customer service. The prices are high but so is the quality of the food. I'll be back to try their burger. They only do lunch Fri-Sun.

All the artwork is from local artists and is all for sale.
