Creamy onion soup to start the fabulous dinner. Topped with spices and pepper
A good appetizer to start with, Crispy Calamari Salad, crispy is definitely the word to describe it. Crispy Calamari drizzled with garlic aioli dressing and served over a mix of fresh romaine lettuce, cabbage, carrots, cucumbers and tomatoes, topped with sliced olives, parsley and parmesan shreds, gave it just the right taste.
Our main entree for the night Beef Tenderloin Steak, Beef tenderloin with mustard demiglace and bearnaise, 6 oz. of pure imported beef medallion, seasoned and seared to perfection, served on a bed of mustard demiglace and top with bearnaise sauce, served with a side of oven roasted seasonal vegetables and pesto garlic mashed potatoes topped with parmesan shreds and thyme. This I say must be one of the most mouth watering steaks that I have ever had. This meat was so tender, and the juices mixed with the bearnaise sauce made it more desirable, definitely will be back for more of this.
Deserts galore with Chocolate Decadence, Mocha overload moist cake and Mango Cheesecake
