I'm a believer in giving second chances, with friends and restaurants. Having been disappointed with the food at this particular Francesca's on a previous visit we decided to stop by for a light dinner last night. Turns out, Tuesday is 1/2 price wine bottle night. Score one.
We took a look at the menu. So many pasta dishes. Not in the mood for that. So we let our very attentive waiter Sal lead the way with a wine and meal suggestion. He was spot on with a very smooth and drinkable California Cab from Avalon Winery, and for our main course the veal medallions. ( I nearly always try to order something I don't want to cook at home. Veal is one of those dishes) The veal came to the table cooked medium, as requested, and the wine and mushroom sauce was perfect. The crusty bread was warm, the service was excellent, so a great evening at Francesca's on 95th in Oak Lawn.
