Interestingly, this is only the second time I've been to Gertrude's. A lot of people at the table also ordered the Rockfish Imperial. To drink, the table shared a bottle of 2008 Robert Sinskey Pinot Noir.

I wrote: "The Rockfish itself is good, but plain. The crab compliments well. The pecans add the welcomed occasional crunch. The lime taste and overall sauce, especially in the crab is good." 7:16 PM

I don't have any notes on how this dish tastes, but I'm pretty sure its the "Grilled Jumbo Shrimp & Crab" and I'm pretty sure it was delicious.

I'm not always able to take clear pictures here at Gertrude's, but the food is great! Today I had the Pulled BBQ Pork Platter. I recall it was juicy and delicious. To drink we had a 2010 Veramonte Pinot Noir Reserva.

The first time I came here was some time in March 2008 when I was a prospective Hopkins student. I recall eating there with another prospective student, C.B., and S.K. I also recall having crab cake. Overall I was left with the impression of quality replacing quantity.
