Okay.. not so much "wine" but a lot of the "dine" part..
I guess part of the perks of the new business, is stuff like this happening...
Tonight, we were invited to eat at Zucca, a very yummy, and pretty new restaurant in our area. I have been there a couple of times myself, and loved it! (Mmmmm.. two words: MARGHERITA PIZZA..) So, when we were invited tonight, I was game.
Driving there (less than 5 minutes away), the thought came to me, we might not be picking what we were eating this evening..
I was spot on..
The Executive Chef had planned our authentic 7 (seven) course meal.
We started off with a wine list, which we passed on :)
We were served a non-alcoholic peach Bellini (yummmmm).
We each enjoyed some of Evan's margherita pizza (see the drool marks above..) and then the rest of our courses followed.. all yummy.. I didn't so much care for the pictured dish.. I am not that big of a seafood fan.. Dixon and Merrill sure licked it up..
I also had Veal for the first time.. it was very tasty.
Now imagine this: 5 different desserts, beautifully plated, ready for me!!! Okay, not all for me, but we did pass them all around (counterclockwise so I would get Merrill's molten chocolate truffle cake first...) and got to sample them all!
What an experience... the best staff were there, to serve us, and the Maitre'd was like our best buddy...
Those guys are awesome!!
