Mamma Zu Menu Recs - Compiling a Meaningful Chowhound List [Richmond, Va]

Steve | Aug 21, 2013 10:07 AM

Of course, there is no menu at Mamma Zu... just a blackboard. Still I'd like to compile a list of preferred items/ hits at MZ. There are so many choices and those choices change, so i'd like to make it easier to have a winning meal.

So far I'd say that a whole fish is probably a great thing to order. I had the branzino, and it was spectacular. I would think other whole fish choices are also a good order.

The other item I had which was a total success is a chanterelle risotto. Gorgeous flavor, great texture, with the meatiness of the mushrooms combined well wit the pungent cheese, just a wonderful compliment of flavors.

I would not order again the orecchiette with their 'flavorful' tomato sauce - this was in between a marinara and a spicy sauce, had a touch of cream in it. And I would not revisit their egg in tuna sauce.

If yuo can, please add to this list to make ordering easier in the future.
