We step into The Glass Onion’s foyer, and it’s effervescent with happy couples sipping glasses of wine. Soon we are sipping our own wine while we wait for a table (no reservations here). Two dining rooms glow with wall sconces, illuminating dark floors, vaulted ceilings, and sage-colored walls. Bright white molding and linens serve as a delightful touch of luxe minimalism. The menu here changes seasonally to spotlight local produce, and everything is very reasonably priced ($15-$29 per entrée.) As a vegetable enthusiast, I ordered the Local Greens Salad ($7), a perfect heap of greens, radish, cucumber, carrots, and grape tomatoes, all grown close by at Coonamessett Farm. My guest went for the Boston Bibb Salad ($9), an artful combination of crisp lettuce, toasted almonds, grapefruit, and goat cheese. For an entrée, I decided on the evening’s special: fresh New England Halibut ($24), delicately crispy and cooked to perfection, served with tender beets in a horseradish dill sauce. My guest savored his Spiced Long Island Duck Breast, ($29), with wild rice, cranberries, and a velvety sweet potato puree. For dessert, we shared a serving of homemade fresh and flavorful raspberry lemonthyme sorbet: a refreshing ending to an exquisite locally-inspired meal.GLASS ONION, 37 North Main Street, Falmouth; 508-540-3730,
