Mosca's - belated response to Chris

Amanda | Jan 5, 2004 08:14 AM

So sorry, my computer hard drive crashed and it was non-functioning for more than a week. My so-called fiancee "FIXED" it Christmas Saturday, with the result that it needed life support from Tech Support and had to be rushed to a computer hospital. $$$$$!

Well, finally, here's my response to your question about Mosca's that I tried to post a week ago.

Here's my original response: Chris, the shrimp
(something akin to barbecued shrimp but it's more of
a true Italian dish that's flavored with rosemary and
garlic, in Italy it's called Scampi ala Griglia), the
chicken dishes and the oyster pan roast entree are all
in the $24-$27 range but each feeds 3 or 4. I'd
sugggest rounding up a party of 4 or more and ordering
1 entree per person (including an order of spaghetti
in that total, (the spaghetti is $7.50 - $7.95) plus
order the crab salad all around.

This is a lot of food but you'll probably stay around
$35 - $38 per head, before beverages, taxes and
tips.

Of course, two people could go and order the crab
salad, the spaghetti and share the oysters or the
shrimp. You're probably around $22 - $25 here before
beverages, etc.

As we always order 'for the table' I don't really know the rest of the menu, but I've heard good things about a few of the other entrees, my Italian father-in-law shortly-to-be praises the italian sausage and potatoes. I've listened to friends of my in-laws talk about the days when wild game was regularly available in hushed tones.

And once we were comped an order of the marinated crab
claws and they were fabulous.

I've had the most fun with a big party (around 12) but
went several times with only three - a long time ago
with a former boy friend and his sister and more
recently with my boss and a client, and it was still
enjoyable as each time we were able to strike a
balance between not sampling enough of the menu and
over ordering. So Mosca's can be a great experience
even with smaller numbers in your party.

Do go, Mosca's is a great experience.
