So apparently those Half Off Tickets Now places that we’ve been taught to not trust actually sells discounts to restaurants! Can you believe it? So we bought one for $4 to get 20% off our meal. Sweet! I’ve never eaten at a Wolfgang Puck restaurant (those pizza express places at airports don’t count!)
So I wasn’t a huge fan of this olive mix, but I loved the garlic-y white bean dip. The bread sticks were a bit tough to chew. So after we had ordered, we got our appetizer and then I commented about how all the other tables around us had breadsticks and we were never brought any, and shortly after what do ya know? I guess one of the waiters has good hearing.
Props to the manager, we had forgotten to bring the 20% off certificate with us and he told us to go ahead and enjoy dinner and he would take the 20% off our bill. So since we were getting the discount, we splurged and got the fried calamari. It was prepared in some spices and flash fried.
The Scialatielli “Ai Quattro Passi” is the House Made Thick Noodle Pasta with Sausage Bolognese, Cream, Basil, Parmesan. The pasta had a texture like any good home made pasta. The sauce however was your generic tomato based meat sauce.
Osso bucco is one of my favorite Italian dishes, it is a Red Wine Braised Veal Osso Bucco, served with Saffron Risotto and Sautéed Spinach. I just can’t think about veal as I eat it. This dish is traditionally made in a white wine based sauce but modern take on it has modified it to red wine.
