A friend and I enjoyed our dinner at the Hillside Supperclub last nite. It's been a popular Monday & Tues nite pop up at what has been the Cossolino. And the 2 guys who have created it, plan to open their resto there in October.
Here's what I really enjoyed:
- The prix fixe option was a fabulous option at $32 per person. I started with a flavorful Liberty Duck Liver Mousse, topped with a cherry gelee. For the main, Calif White Bass on a bed of orzo, cherry tomatoes, capers & olives. The fish was especially moist and fresh. Dessert: opted for the smoked chili chocolate ganache with brandied cherries. My friend selected the lemon ricotta cake with lemon thyme and blueberries + a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Both were enjoyable, tho I slightly preferred the ricotta cake.
- And it's QUIET!! With no background music + great acoustics, we enjoyed a meal where we could sit and talk and be heard. What a treat.
