Lovely evening at the Grapevine, start to finish. First, the restaurant recently expanded seating, so there were plenty of tables available on a Saturday night. I love this. Next, the waiter was extremely professional and polite. Then our food came quickly, starting with two appetizers of steak tartare and a caesar salad. The steak, which came with crostini and aioli, was so clean, so light, I could easily have had 2 or more servings. The salad, which was a genuine caesar with long anchovies, was fresh, salty and flavorful. Then my friend and I shared two main dishes, a special of risotto with lobster, shrimp, parmesan, and pancetta, and a goat-cheese stuffed gnocchi with lobster and squash. I'm not the biggest fan of goat cheese, but even so, the second dish was again, very fresh, clean and flavorful. I loved the risotto, especially the quality of the lobster and shrimp which were perfectly cooked and had great "bite" (well, the shrimp anyway). The owner stopped by to check on us/the other tables, and I find this a classy, lovely touch to a very nice night.
