It was nice to meet Ross for dinner after work, that rarely happens when you live 2 hours apart. The parking lot was packed as usual, a good sign for the popularity of a restaurant. We were a few minutes early for our reservation so we had to wait a bit, no biggie.
As soon as we were seated our waiter brought us some bread with olive tapenade. I really love olives, as does Ross, so we both enjoyed the tapenade.
The side of risotto was also really good. I thought the flavors were there, the saffron rice was incredible. I think next time we go (and yes, there will be a next time), I will order this as my meal. We polished that off pretty quickly, because as much as I hated to share, I decided to be a nice girlfriend.
Excuse my dark pictures, the restaurant was really dimly lit so it was hard to get good shots.
We opted out of dessert, although they did have a good looking dessert tray, after all, you eat with your eyes first.
All in all, we will be back, hopefully sooner rather than later!
