My husband and I had dinner at Gold tonight. I thought it was called The Gold Room but apparently they have changed the name. The address says Ina Road but it isn't really on Ina; you must turn off at the Westward Look Resort. The restaurant overlooks Tucson. Beware that your GPS may tell you have arrived at your designation and you don't it.
Our waitress was Bernadette and she was very competent. She checked back with us frequently except when we were ready for dessert but that may have been because she had a large table. We asked for a recommendation on a semi-sweet wine and she recommended the Pinot Grigio... A good choice.
My husband ordered the ribeye but chose not have the mushroom demi-glace since he doesn't like mushrooms. I opted for the salmon with pistachio crust and balsamic onions. Before our meal arrived Bernadette brought us bread, sourdough and honey molasses. The prickly pear whipped butter that was served with it was delicious.
My husband's ribeye was served with shallot mashed potatoes and green beans. The plate was beautiful with the potatoes displayed in a soft serve ice cream like fashion. However, the steak was thin and over cooked; he ordered medium and it was medium well. The Demi-glace may have prevented the slight dryness.
My salmon, on the other-hand, was superb! It was perfectly prepared and was sitting on a bed of spinach with balsamic onions on top. The onions set off the whole dish and the pistachio crust was good as well.
For dessert we shared prickly pear sorbet that was prepared at the restaurant. We are in Tucson, how can we resist more prickly pear!
