Entrees: Mr. R has the sicilian brick chicken, which he said was "great". Master P has the salmon stuffed with lobster and crab, which was a special this evening, and he thought it was ok, gives it a 3.5? I'm not sure why he did not like it better.
The Greek has the gorgonzola-crusted organic pork chop with braised napa cabbage and rosemary potatoes...I thought it was really good. He hated it. But here is the thing, the gorgonzola was strong, and this is why he did not like it. If you like a nice strong gorgonzola, I recommend this dish.
Scarlet had the butternut squash ravioli. Now, it seems alot of joints are doing these this winter, but I'm here to tell you these are the best, hands down. They had such a delicate flavor without being "gummy" as I have had experienced at other places.
Lulu has the sweet potato gnocchi. We all agree it is not so great, kind of bland. The ravioli is a much better choice as is my dish. I had the wild mushroom risotto. I love risotto and this one is so perfect. They do a great risotto, so if you are a seafood lover I'm sure their seafood risotto is great.
We have three bottles of red wine, and I honestly do not remember the details, put here is a pic...maybe the "wine gal" from the Angelina website can help us out. One is a zinfandel. I love zins, but everyone else hated it. They loved the other one and ordered two bottles.
For dessert we have the chocolate brownie, the trio of gelato (peanut butter, blueberry & white chocolate) and the apple crostado. Dessert was decent, the brownie didn't blow me away. The PB & blueberry gelato tasted like pb&j when eaten together...yum. The apple crostado was my favorite of our desserts.
btw, Blogger users....I am more than frustrated with the new editor...moving my pics and D's around, lining them up, text wrapping....ugh!!!! Why don't they fix this??
The winegal answered my question about the Zin I enjoyed, and in SUCH a poetic way. Thanks, Winegal! I'll add your blog to my blogroll. Cheers!
