I met up with Patrick and Shirley at Isa Restaurant for Dine About Town. Although we might have gotten a bit cheated as their regular prix fixe for Mon thru Thur is only $28 while for DAT, it’s $35… I hope that these portions we got were larger…
Well for appetizers, we started out with salmon carpaccio (which I didn’t get to try).
The calamari with beans and cooked arugula. Very tender and had nice flavor.
The mussels with garlic, white wine, parsley, and grilled bread. A big portion and the “soup” was really good with the bread.
For main courses, we had the pan fried sole with broccolini. The sole was a bit sweet and fresh. I really like the broccolini.
This is the flat iron steak, nice and tender, with potato gratin, creamy and delicious.
Lobster bouillabaisse with fish and clams. The bouillabaisse was good but I couldn’t tell it was lobster.
For desserts, we had two cheese courses and creme brulee.
Needless to say, we were pretty stuffed. The bread they offered too was delicious, toasty on the outside and soft on the inside and served warm. I wish I could have eaten more of it, I can’t wait to have carbs again!
