My husband and I joined another couple for dinner at Dolce. We began the evening with the charcuterie. 90% of the huge platter was made in house and both the quantity and the quality were excellent. I especially enjoyed the pickled ramps which were sweet and spicy. The house made sausages were all delicious. The only thing on the platter that I did not care for was their riff on pate. I can't remember what they called it but it was bland and a dose of salt did not help. This was a minor issue as there was a varied selection and a huge quantity.
I ordered the beet salad and it was amazing. Golden and red beets shaved to just the perfect thickness layered under frisée and accented with dollops of goat cheese. My husband got the French onion soup. A lovely mound of sweetly caramelized onions in a dark, rich broth. There was not even a hint of the saltiness or metallic taste that so often accompanies this type of soup.
As a main course I ordered the appetizer portion of the risotto of the day - a dunguneouss crab asparagus risotto. The rice was creamy with a light crab flavor. The size was large enough to share. My husband ordered lamb chops on lentils. The lamb was perfectly cooked and the lentils were rich and a perfect accompaniment to the protein.
For dessert we split the bread pudding. It was served with a quenelle of homemade vanilla ice cream, a rich bourbon caramel, and small mounds of spiced raisins. It was seriously the best bread pudding I have ever had!
If I could pick on anything, it would be the waiter. He was very friendly and helpful but he was not knowledge about the wine. The restaurant does not employee a sommelier. Minor blip in a wonderful evening!
