When I was asked to join some friends for lunch at Paradiso today, I could not say no.
My wife accidentally ended up there when getting lost going to a funeral with her father. Since then they go back from time to time because they love the food and atmosphere. I have always been secretly jealous that I have never been invited. So when the opportunity arose, I jumped all over it!
Our small table for 14.
The first item to come out were little Focaccia bread soldiers with a very amazing oil to dip said bread soldier. The bread was warm and charred. Just the way I like it.
We ordered a tapas platter of appetizers but they went so fast I didn’t get one single photo.
I knew it was my mission today to eat the Moroccan Chicken Supreme.
Took a little walk around. I love wine and I love wine bottles on display. I also love bathrooms with boobies.
This amazing slab of chicken arrived and it was only a matter of time before it was in my belly. Inside was a wonderfully curious filling. Very tasty. My wife has had this on occasion. She post-recommended it; as in I had ordered it before she gave me a glowing review. The chicken was on a bed of leeks and spinach which was on a bed of balsamic doused potato slabs.
There was a little bit of room left for this sweet slice of diabetes, errr, I mean Double Chocolate Torte. Mmmmmm. Oh did I mention the toffy-like coated almonds that were bathing in a chocolate sauce?
Yes I would go back.
I am a little sad to say that the stack of cards I left at the front were removed even before I even left the restaurant. Perhaps they just wanted to check the site out first and once they see this great post they’ll put them back 🙂
