Hubby and I went here for the first time last night for Restaurant Week. We ordered from the Restaurant Week menu because frankly a 3 course meal for $35 is too good to pass up. We started with a cocktail and warm bread accompanied by softened butter flavored with honey. Yummy! Hubby started with the French Onion Soup which was tasty. I started with the Insulata Misto, which was generously portioned. I loved the smoky blue cheese and Orange Cognac Dressing although I had to request freshly ground pepper. Hubby had the Seared 1855 All Natural Angus Strip Loin Steak which was cooked just as ordered. I had the Pan Seared Red Snapper. My meal had a huge portion of delicious fish, but the sides were unbelievable. The couscous was delicious with fresh grilled corn, and a yummy tomato sauce that appeared to have been make from fresh roasted tomatoes. The combination of flavors was divine! For dessert, we shared the Creme Brulee and Chocolate Opus One. Our waitress had told us the creme brulee flavors of the day were vanilla and cappucino, but they ran out of cappucino so substituted blueberry. I would have preferred the cappucino, but she made it up to us by giving us two servings of the vanilla. The chocolate portion of the Opus One was a brownie, which I'm not a huge fan of, but the yummy pistachio ice cream served on top of what appeared to be an almond wafer/cookie was great.
