Much tastier was succulent roasted chicken with tomatoes, its hot, crispy skin juxtaposed with a slick of hummus and a cool salad of cucumber, olives, peppers, arugula, and pine nuts. The roasted pork chop was also juicy, nestled on corn-studded polenta with roasted red peppers and whole-grain mustard sauce.

My dining companions and I appreciated desserts that weren't run of the mill. How about fresh strawberries and figs tossed with airy meringues and a dab of aged balsamic? Or a velvety chocolate-hazelnut parfait? Those two covered both ends of the decadence spectrum, and definitely satisfied our collective sweet tooth. But warm sticky toffee pudding was gobbled up in a greedy blur of flashing spoons, along with a shiny blob of sweet cream gelato.

Aromatic seafood stew, filled with shrimp, halibut, clams, and mussels, is a highlight at St. Francis.
