We went to Carmen Anthony in New Haven the other evening. We were attracted by the "See Sip Savor" promotion that is going on at several New Haven Restaurants. The promotion is a three course dinner for $29.00. The "catch" is you have to be seated before 6:00 or after 9:00.
We both started with the Campagna Salad. Unfortunately, the dressing was not mixed properly, and it was very oily, with very little flavor.
My wife had the Filet Mignon Prosciuttini which is a filet mignon, stuffed with prosciutto, mozzarella cheese, and baby spinach, topped with a port wine demi glace. She said it was excellent.
I had the Potato Encrusted Salmon, which is pan seared Salmon encrusted with potato and finished with a parmesan cream sauce, served with vegetables and mashed potato. It was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing.
For dessert, they offered creme brulee. I've never had creme brulee before, but it tasted wonderful.
