Nook in Black Rock

The latest restaurant to open in Black Rock is The Nook, a 22-seat eatery that makes diners feel like their most sophisticated foodie friends have invited them over for a meal. The restaurant opens just once a week for Friday night dinners, with a reservation-only policy. Guests are ushered into a homey dining room decorated with communal candlelit tables, antiques and chandeliers. The menu changes weekly, from Thai food to Mediterranean fare. The evening ends with one of owner Carol Lentini’s signature desserts, like triple strawberry layer cake. Dinners are BYOB, with a $60 flat fee per person. thenookblackrock.com
