Expensive Cheese! 10/16/2006

We went here for an overdue date night looking for something a little different but not ridiculously expensive. When we made our reservation it seemed like it was going to be very busy, but it didn't seem that way when we go there. We ordered some white wine by the glass, espresso, the cheese plate, the roast chicken ($18), and Lasagne Bolognese ($15). My wife prefers Riesling-type wines which some places don't carry. It looked as though their wine list had a European focus, but they were able to find something my wife liked, which was good. I asked for a coffee, but was told all they had as Americano, or espresso, which was a bit odd. No coffee? Harumph. They warned us that the roast chicken would take 35 minutes, so we ordered the 4-cheese appetizer to eat while we waited. The cheeses were from all over the place (Corsica, Iowa, et cetera) and they did a good job explaining them. They weren't my favourite and the $13 price was a bit steep considering how thinly some were sliced. The entrees were interesting and solid. My "bolognese" had 3 meats and plenty of cheese. It was tasty and filling. My wife's roast chicken included two chicken legs, and was really two meals. She didn't care, however, for the flavour of the "bread salad" which came with it. more
