Dominick's Sunday Supper Report

eriny | Nov 21, 2005 12:12 PM

To be honest, what drew me to try Dominick's Sunday supper (other than the cheap-o price tag-3 courses, $15) was the prospect of a quiet, candle-covered patio, and in that aspect, the place didn't disappoint. The setting is divine. Unfortunately, the food does not match the location.

The sunday supper menu for 11/20: First, eggplant cakes with mozzarella. These were tasty--crispy on the outside, creamy pureed eggplant on the inside, with mozzarella in the middle. Second, mushroom ravioli with porcini sauce. This was underwhelming--the porcini "sauce" was bland and watery. The raviolis were limp and flavorless, though a dash of salt and pepper seemed to perk them up. Third was ricotta cheesecake--this was fine, tasted lemony and fresh, with a ginger-flavored crust, probably homemade (not frozen).

On Sundays Dominick's also sells cheap bottles of wine--$10 for the house red or white. We went with the red, slightly syrupy, but a decent chianti-esque taste.

We ended the meal with coffee, and moved to comfy chairs in front of the outdoor fireplace, which almost made up for the mediocre meal.
