We decided to try out Catalano's as part of the 'Dine Around' experience as the menu looked interesting and quite different from the other restaurants in the 'Dine Around' listing. We had a reservation so arrived on time and were excorted to a small table overlooking the Legislative Building. The lights of the building made it seem quite romantic. The server brought menus and rushed away. When she came back we ordered wine as well as our meal as she seemed to be in a rush. There was hardly anyone in the restaurant; a table of 4 next to us and 2 other tables of two. I ordered the $30 dine around special: lobster bisque, elk short rib and a trio of sample desserts. My partner ordered a rockfish from the menu plus a caesar. The bisque and salad came before our glass of wine quite strange given how quiet it was. The bisque was a little bland but okay. The elk ribs came on a bed of creamy polenta and some veggies. The ribs were to die for they were so good. Shared with my partner so she could enjoy a taste and I tasted her rockfish which I found overcooked and quite dry. Glad I had ordered the elk. We then ordered coffee to have with the dessert. The dessert was good as well: flourless chocolate cake, creme brule and a lemon recotta fritter...yum. However, we waited and waited for our coffee and were finished the dessert before the coffee arrived.
