With live music nightly, the Patio Lounge attracts an affluent over-40 crowd to this friendly and casual restaurant named for the purple-flowered jacaranda tree. Although the Jacaranda is best known as a local gathering spot, it has also received several dining awards. Fresh fish is well prepared here, or you can choose certified Angus steaks or prime rib. The linguine with a dozen littleneck clams tossed in a piquant red or white clam sauce is consistently excellent. For dessert, the gooey turtle pie -- ice cream, caramel, fudge sauce, chopped nuts, and whipped cream -- will send you away stuffed.
