I can't always cook all my meals. And I definitely can't always eat healthy. So, when I do get the chance to indulge on a meal, I make sure it is damn worth it.
Luckily, I have great friends that also enjoy amazing food. So, for a recent dinner rehearsal that I attended for our best friends, I was treated to the refreshingly great food of Cafe Firenze by Chef Fabio Viviani (Top Chef Season 6 anyone??)
I had to start with the most important thing of all: Dirty Martini. Perfection.
The trio of Bruschetta: Tomato & Basil, Artichoke & Cheese, Zucchini & Shrimp.
The Parmesan on the Artichoke Bruschetta definitely made this the best seller of the group.
Then I had this divine drink...Balsamic Martini? Yes that's a question mark...I can't clearly recall what it's called!
Next up was the Prosciutto, Melon & Mozzarella and Shrimp Pancetta. BACON WRAPPED SHRIMP?? The word Bacon honestly says enough.
Then instead of remembering to take a picture of the Pear Salad, I drank. Vodka, Sprite & Orange Juice.
And the the entree, I chose the Filet Mignon "in a peppercorn sauce served with mashed potatoes and garlic broccalli". I obviously enjoyed this. Juicey, buttery and amazing.
The lastely dessert. A Trio Cake sampler. Trio?? Yes. Three cakes. I know. I almost died. Chocalate cake, lemon cheesecake and bread pudding. Really couldn't have ended it any other way.
WORTH. EVERY. CALORIE.
