Nataz Adventures in Eating

I had read about this place and heard it was good. I went with a group of girlfriends on Wed. night. They have pre-fixe deal for $20/person (up to 8 people). I was told by the waitress that it is $25/person if there are more than 8 in your party (I don't get that part). You don't know what will be served, it is Chefs Choice, but I was told that there would be a fish/beef/chicken dish included each night. Mostly everything is served family-style. We were first brought a platter of sliced fresh mozzarella and tomatoes with basil on top. There were 7 in my party and there were 7 slices. Next we were brought a very nice salad (not family style) that contained spinach, blueberries, melon, candied walnuts and a quite-tasty balsamic dressing. The next course was pasta and we were served a platter of home-made rigatoni stuffed with ricotta & spinach (I think) and covered in a sweet red sauce. Also there was a platter of huge home-made ravioli with a white sauce and fresh mushrooms in and around them. All very yummy. We were all getting full and the entrees hadn't arrived yet! The next course was a platter of zuppa de pesce (clams/mussels/crab) with angel hair pasta. Not too spicy, but quite good. Then a huge platter with boneless chicken breast accompanied by vegetables in a hoisin sauce. I did not have this, but everyone said it was good. The final platter we were served contained sliced filet mignon with mashed yukon gold potatoes. The meat was tender and the potatoes delicious. Dessert was not family style, but we were offered cheese cake with strawberries, tiramisu or devils food cake. I had the tiramisu and it was very light and delicious. This is a BYOB place and they charge $1.50/person corkage (which includes coffee/tea/soft drinks). The waitress brought us a bucket with ice to keep our bottles of wine cold. We all went home with 1 or 2 doggie bags each. They call it Adventures in Eating and it really was (in a good way!)
