Never been to Toluca Lake...seems like a nice area.
Went to Prosecco with three friends and had a great time.
Greeted at the door by the server, Brian. He couldn't have been friendlier...I would ask for him again.
Started with a bottle of Prosecco, which, to be frank, was the weakest part of the meal. Our group made jokes about how they could name the place Prosecco and only have one kind, and not very good...
Shrimp in polenta: 4 large shrimp over creamy, buttery polenta. Delicious.
Brushetta with mozzarella: We were afraid that the tomatoes this time of year wouldn't be any good, but they were tasty. Surprisingly, it was th echeese that fell a little short, flavor-wise.
Salad with blue cheese, and pine nuts: We pratically fought over this one...
Arrabiata with Chicken and Goat Cheese ($14): Recommended by the server, and with good reason...it rocked! VERY spicy, though.
Filet Mignon special (I think around $30): A bit over the medium rare we'd ordered, but with a delicious Bleu Cheese sauce, potatoes and vegetables.
The Best Damned Bread Pudding, Period (My name, not theirs). Made with (I think) Pannetone, served with cinnamon ice cream, this was one of the best desserts I've had in the last year.
Dinner for four, two btls of wine, tip included, $210. We got every bit of our money's worth, and will certainly return.
