Another fabulous meal at Giorgio Baldi

AB | Sep 2, 200507:55 PM     3

Went to Giorgio the other night and had yet another fabulous meal from there. Started with the mushroom risotto off the menu - it is truly superb. It's lighter than most risottos I've had, with a terrific tomato sauce. The SO had the veal gnocchi to start. The gnocchi itself was very good - very light and a nice texture, but the veal sauce was not my favorite. It was not bad, but I just like other things on the menu (like the gorganzola gnocchi) more. Also tried the white truffle risotto, which was rich and decadent, with an emphasis on RICH. Delicious.

For mains, we both had the dover sole in the lemon and wine sauce. Giorgio really knows what he's doing with his fish - this was amazing. At $40, it is not cheap, but it is fantastic. Light, flavorful, and the sauce is a perfect combination of white wine and lemon.

Skipped dessert, I don't think they're worth it here. Overall another fabulous dinner at GB.

FYI - they are now sending people over to the bar next door for drinks before dinner while waiting for your table. The bar used to be the Friendship, but now it is The Hideout. Pretty cool place with a full bar, nice for a drink before dinner.
