Maysville pitches itself as a whiskey bar and restaurant, and indeed it delivers on alcohol (and food) in spades, as evident from the glowing display of bottles behind the wooden bar that greets you upon entry.
A full page of whiskey inspired cocktails and mixed drinks accompany a book with pages upon pages of all sorts of whiskeys to properly whet your whistle. I ordered the Nor'easter, with bourbon, maple syrup, ginger beer and lime, and it was delicious - essentially a delightful little bourbon-fueled mojito.
Fried oysters, came five to an order for $15. The oysters were small, but flavorful, topped with a tasty, creamy chili mayo and chili.
The black spaghetti ($15) was essentially four healthy bites of briny noodle and thin slices of grilled squid. Light and lovely but so, so little.
With the check comes a lovely little plate of lemon shortbread and caramel truffles. The truffle had to be the best piece of chocolate I've had in sometime. We wished our waiter came by for us to ask for more. I think he knew better than to come by again - our eyes instantly ravenous from the taste of creamy cocoa-dusted chocolate.
