Gamba

Dining

A mellow, tastefully decorated basement restaurant, Gamba is a fashionable choice for enjoying seafood. Chef Derek Marshall is building quite a reputation for his creations, mixing local ingredients and methods from around the world with an emphasis on Asian flavors. Gamba has been the recipient of several awards. The wine list is predictably laudable and special offers on pre-theater menus give everyone a chance to sample superb seafood, even if they're on a budget. Two daily shipments ensure that the fish are fresh from the water and there are always one or two meat and vegetarian options.
