Every monday, starting today, they are featuring a different region of Italy.
Tonight was the region where bologna is (forgot the actual name of the region)
App - Cold cuts inside of flatbread with a sharp cheese and ruccola. Think of a really really good quesidilla.
Served with a dark sweet champagne
Primi - Lasagna bolognese. This was awesome. I don't eat lasagna relatively often but have had many and it is amongst the best I had.
Served with a Sauvignon from the region.
Secundi - Meats, veggies served with mustard with something else in the mustard on the side. This too was awesome. My meats were shortribs, tongue, rabbit quarter, oxtail and bull's leg sausage.
Served with a merlot from the region.
Dessert was a pound cake drenched in cream and I believe gran marnier. Named something inglese. It was very good.
The whole bill for this comes to $45 per peson+tax and tip. If you did not have dinner yet, run don't walk there. It is a huge bargain.
I was told the region would be different every monday but the pricing structure would be the same while this is going on (I am assuming it is throughout the summer).
Folks, this is a lot of great food for not a lot of money. There is a good chance I will be there every monday until this special ends.
