What a find! Once you get past the drive to this place and you turn your keys over to the correct valet (be certain that he's wearing a shirt with the name of the restaurant!), you walk through the front door and are swept to another time. The front area is intimate...a handful of tables and meals are prepared directly over the counter. The chefs all seem to enjoy what they are creating. Yes...creating! Jonathan Vlasic--owner and head chef--visited each table. Ohhh, I'm getting ahead of my story. My husband and I experienced such delightful, delicious, yummy (my mouth is watering as I recall the textures, the aromas) dishes. The wine...ahhh, the white wine was absolutely the best that I have had the pleasure to have. The Italian bread sliced to the perfect size was utilized to soak up some of the olive oil and herbs in a small dish. There was a small dish of cheeses...herbal butter...grated cheese. Ohhhh my! As an appitizer, we enjoyed stuffed banana peppers. Then, the salad...ahhhh, the way a sald ought to be made: textures, tastes, just enough dressing. The pasta dish had a tomato vodka sauce with spinach. And, we hadn't had our entrees! My husband enjoyed ribeye done to perfection. I enjoyed pork tenderloin that had been marinated in lavendar and herbs. Dessert was this delicious raspberry terimasu. He washed it down with a hot cup of freshly brewed black coffee, while I finished my wonderful glass of white wine. A birthday to remember. Oh, the waitress handed me a menu with my name printed on it wishing me a Happy Birthday!
