Closing time…

Another outrageous evening for dinner! We closed that joint down… LITERALLY! Time really does fly when you are chatting away and enjoying yourself.
As an appetizer, we did a family-style setup. Fried calamari tossed in a balsamic glaze [AMAZING], sautéed shrimp in a spicy lemon butter sauce, as well as a hearty vibrant arugula salad with pears, Parmesan shavings and candied pecans! All delicious and different in their own special ways.
As mains; a spicy chicken arabiata with hot peppers in their vinegary goodness, grilled flank steak topped with shrimp, grilled sea bass and an always classic chicken marsala! Everything was delicious as our table went quiet as we savored each luscious bite…
For dessert… we all shared a peanut butter tartufo. One word… DIVINE! Silky and smooth, creamy and a slight bit salty. I need another right about now! Well maybe I can try and make one soon… hmmmm

I anticipate starting off with some wonderful appetizers and then of course dinner… this new little place never disappoints and the company is always what makes the meal so this should be stellar ! So for now we can enjoy a great drink while waiting for our table.
