I started with a blood orange martini that really hit the spot. This has been a stressful couple of weeks. My mind and body really needed yoga. But after yoga, it really wanted vodka. :-) The martini was great, but didn't beat the best blood orange martini ever (that honor is reserved for a great restaurant in Baltimore called Pazo).
I was so torn between pizza, pasta, and the appetizers that I really couldn't decide. The special, though, seemed really intriguing, so I decided to be daring and ask about it. Our *fabulous* waiter said the duck egg with polenta and garlic puree was a hit, but that it was a little on the small side. I don't usually eat big dinners, but this gave me the opportunity to try two things on the menu, since a small entree meant I might be able to make room for an appetizer.
|I need to remember to take pictures before I dig in! The missing arancini was in my mouth by the time I snapped this!|
|Look at how bright that yolk is!|
|Do you notice the multi-colored yolk? It gave me some pause as I thought, "baby ducky."|
Back to dinner. Liz got a lobster and scallop tortellini dish. POSTO! makes it's own pasta and the tortellini were big and beautiful. They serve their pasta in two sizes and even the larger portion was about half the size of pasta dishes at America's big chain restaurants. Liz cleaned her plate.
We were still talking as we finished our entrees, so we decided to split a cherry-chocolate cake for dessert after consulting with our waiter for his suggestion. I ordered a side of vanilla gelato, which went really well with the rich cake. The cake was like a warm crumbly brownie. I loved the walnuts and the cherries.
I will definitely head back to POSTO soon and will do my best to try their wood-fired pizza next time!
Question: Have you ever eaten an egg from an animal other than a chicken?! Think! There are a lot of different kinds of eggs out there! ;-)
