Prix fixe at Solo

A non-Jewish colleague and I had the prix fixe today at Solo and we were both thoroughly impressed. She had the wild mushroom soup/bisque, followed by rigatoni with spicy italian sausage and finished with a selection of sorbets. The soup was very good, though a little simple for my tastes. The pasta dish was a treat, the flavor of the sausage strong but not overwhelming and the rigatoni was perfectly al dente. The sorbets were also great, three different flavors: red respberry, strawberry and mango.
I started with the cured wild salmon with micro greens, served with a herb "yogurt" horseradish dressing and olive oil, which was fabulous, salmon was silky and the dressing was great. My main course was a chicken dish. They explained it when we sat down, but I can't recall the exact description. Whatever it was, it was wonderful. It was about 4 (!) boneless thighs, grilled with spices that were faintly Indian with a touch of perhaps Turkish flavors. It was served in a light tomato sauce (brothy) along with polenta fries and yellow beans. This was a great dish, and I was so thrilled it was dark meat, what a treat. My dessert was the warm chocolate cake with cappuccino ice "cream," that is the same as at Prime Grill, which is always a pleaser. The service was very good and the ambiance. Nice crowd, a mix of businessmen tourists. The meal was $50 with tax and tip, and it was worth every penny. I was very happy with it.
