Okay, don't beat me up too bad, but was in Westbury, NY tonight, and went to the Cheesecake factory, because I thought I wanted a piece of cheesecake, but then we sat and ordered other stuff instead...Had the avocado egg rolls, which were very good, and then had a pasta dish, which I cringe to use the word, but yes, it was exceptional. Could it be? Perhaps I was not in this often maligned mediocre hotspot, okay, I closed my eyes, and thought of somewhere else, and took another bite, no, I really was in CF, and what I was eating was good. And, even the service was good, and well, I got too full to have the cheescake, but I did peruse all the types, and thought it better to not have to make this decision. The pasta I got was:
PASTA WITH PESTO, CHICKEN AND MUSHROOMS
Spaghettini Tossed with Fresh Basil Sauce, Mushrooms,
Oven-Roasted Tomatoes, Garlic and Cream.
Topped with Grilled Chicken, Parmesan and Pine Nuts
The pasta was al dente, the sauce perfect, with tons of pine nuts, the mushrooms grilled to perfection, and the chicken was grilled, not overcooked, nice and juicy...
What can I say, I'll go back again, and this time I'll get that cheesecake......but what flavor?
Oh, my husband was with me, and he really loved it too....anyone else out there have this dish, or was it a lucky night? By the way, the place was packed at 6:30 pm......
