That turned out well, but I like the flavour of some meat in the carbonara.

Note to self: do the prep work before making the Margaritas. It's just easier.

I had a Hamburger topped with Sweet Baby Ray's and sliced purple onion with a Garden Salad. I planned on having Fat Free Frozen Vanilla Yogurt topped with Fresh Peaches. I ate 4 hours ago and I am still full. Dessert might wait until breakfast.

we started with salads and manhattan clam chowder, then a fantastic appy of fried calamari and shrimp with spicy marinara.

next, my boy had a sizzling sirloin (sizzling on a white hot plate with maggi sauce) and a side of pasta; dw had the veal picata, baked spud, and steamed stringbeans; i had the marinated veal chops and a side of pasta.

portions were huge, and everything delicious.

dessert was coffee and a so-so tiramisu.

we'll have to try their pizza soon.
Sounds like a perfect night out Tom....the decor sounds fab and I love the sound of the food you had Glad you had such a nice night!

I've been craving turkey lately, and remembered I had some drumsticks in the freezer. It wasn't too terribly hot today so I roasted one, along with some veggies. I love that caramelization on the veggies. It was good, but I couldn't finish it all.
