I have driven by this strip mall 100 times and always overlooked this place. On Sunday the place we wanted to eat at was closed we took a chance and went to Cosmopolitan....WOW!
It is cozy and romantic inside, with comfortable seating and lovely lighting. The Bosnian family was kind and welcoming.
On to the food...We started with a bottle of wine from their local country. The bouquet was rich and floral and the linger notes were spicy. We tend to favor the large, full-bodied Cabs and Spanish reds and this was certainly a departure from those flavors. But as we drank the wine with the food, it accompanied it well.
At our server's recommendation (very kind Ramona) we started with the sausage. They were delicate in texture and appeared to be sauteed. They were served with a roasted red-pepper and eggplant sauce and raw onions. The sauce they were served with was average but they were so full of flavor they didn't need the sauce.
All the tables were given homemade bread and a dipping spread made of sour cream, feta cheese and cream cheese, very tasty.
The schnitzel was to die for. Buttery, crispy and tender; the best my boyfriend had ever had. It comes with either a salad or fries but my very smart boyfriend ordered the spatzel. It is a small pasta like noodle that is a bit crispy on the outside and tender like a potato dumpling on the inside. On top they served caramelized onions; Absolutely yummy comfort food. It was like eating in your grandmothers kitchen; well if your grandmother was a terrific Bosnian chef!
I ordered the stuffed Veal, it was crispy and breaded like the schnitzel, but it was rolled up and on the inside was a cheese mixture with spicy peppers. Very good but I was drawn to the delicious simplicity of my boyfriend's meal more. Mine came with roasted potatoes and I should have at least tasted them but we were too busy fighting over the last nibble of spatzel. They looked good and well seasoned.
We did not order desert but I am sure we will next time we go...this will easily become one of our favorite hidden gems to eat at.
The only tips I have is the place got very (surprisingly) busy, even on a cold Sunday night...so you may want to make reservations. In addition the portions were very large and I think two people could do very well eating an appetizer and an entrée. My only regret is not taking a picture of our beautiful meals to share with you.
