Bravo! – Valentine’s Day

Because I had a coupon for a free dessert at Bravo!, we decided to go there for a late lunch.  We haven’t been there in a while, and I wanted to see what their seasonal offerings were.  The pork roast looked good, but I decided not to get it, because it didn’t come in a lunch size.  With soup, entree, and dessert, oh, and don’t forget the bread, a dinner size plate is too much for me, even keeping leftovers in mind.

From Restaurants

The lunch menu offers a satisfying number of options.  I was a little torn between the shrimp in the spicy sauce and the spinach and cheese filled tortellini, just to mention a few.

From Restaurants

Dean’s Lobster Bisque – this is one of the seasonal offerings.

Italian wedding soup!  A little salty, but still good.

Here’s a close up – it’s nothing like Grandma used to make, but I guess it will have to do.  Even Dad’s is better, but don’t tell him I admitted that.

From Restaurants

Piping hot bread fresh from the oven!  And weird orange olive oil to dip it in.

From Restaurants

There are two different kinds of bread – one with basil and other spices, and one with a nice, firm crust.

From Restaurants

Dean’s lunch – Diavolo Shrimp.  I would have gotten it if it didn’t have a cream sauce.

From Restaurants

Mediterranean Penne, add shrimp, delete feta.  Yum!

From Restaurants

This was a great dish.  The pasta was pleasantly firm, and the sun dried tomatoes gave it a nice zip. 

From Restaurants

Dean’s Apple Crostada.  I was too full to even try to steal a taste.

From Restaurants

My dessert – it had tiramisu, chocolate chip bread pudding, and a chocolate cake.  Oh, and lots of ice cream.

From Restaurants

I liked this a lot, but I could not finish it.  The bread pudding was my favorite.  The cake was my least favorite.  Next time I will try to get Dean to split it with me, mainly because he hates bread pudding.

Dinner was $52 with the tip.  Not too bad, considering I was so full I felt a little sick.  The restaurant was extremely busy today, so the service wasn’t up to snuff, but the manager did come over to check on us.  He also got to get me a refill on my coffee, as he was the third person I asked.  There was a long lag between getting the bill and the waiter coming back to pick it up, which didn’t make any sense since there were about five couples waiting for a table.  Overall, it was a good, not great, Valentine’s meal.
