HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY FELLOW CHOWHOUNDS!!
Started bringing in the New Year in the very best way --with delightful friends,wonderful food and great wine.
Ravenna at 2960 Skippack Pk.-phone-610-584-5650-turned out to be a wonderful find out here in Worcester,PA.
Creative Italian is how I would describe this restaurant.For apps. Ray and I had the Frutti Di Mare:shrimp,scallops,calamari and mussel salad on a bed of sliced endive with citronette--the seafood was tenderly cooked-yum. For our pasta course Ray had the Gnocci with Braised Short Ribs( the meat tasted as if it slow-cooked all day which made it tender with lots of flavor. I had the Veal Tortelloni with shitake mushrooms,pancetta and shaved reggiano--I could of had this dish alone and left with a smile on my face for the rest of the evening. Our entrees Osso Bucco with Risotto and Broccoli Rabe and Grilled Baby Lamb Chops with Truffled Celery Root and Salsa Verde were made perfectly--veal was fork tender and the lamb had a nice grilled taste with a pink center. For dessert we split the Tiramisu,the perfect ending for such a wonderful year--oh I mean dinner! David, Judy,Rich and Robin thanks for making our New Year Eve so special.
