This is Casey. Remember the 'To Be Continued.." thing I mentioned back in September?* Well this is it. It's happening. The continuing is going on right here and now people!
Janine and I were once again joined by her mom Anna and her uncle Frank. As an appetizer I got the white truffle oil and mushroom mac and cheese. It was amazing and I don't even like mushrooms. The cheese was thick and creamy and browned on top to give it some crispness. The pasta was nice and soft without being mushy. And there was truffle oil in it as well, apparently. Also we all shared the Calamari fritti with Chipotle Aioli whch was also excellent. And we have had a lot of calamari the world over to compare it to. This was very light and not greasy in the slightest. Also the aioli was very airy and the chipotle gave just a hint of smokiness and warmth without being hot.
Janine got the lasagna which was also great, though in my opinion it is hard to go wrong with lasagna. I believe Frank got the skirt steak salad and Anna got the ravioli, both of which they enjoyed very much.
In the end everything was excellent, the setting is cute and I would go back or recommend it to anyone, but for the rehersal dinner it is a little small and it has more of a bistro feel than a restaurant. So the hunt continues!
*I didn't say it was going to be continued soon!
