Foodie Friday

Welcome to the weekend lovers! I am so excited for a weekend of fun – celebrating graduations, spending time with my Dad, going on a long ride with Phil & hopefully sneaking in lots of little yoga sessions!

This week’s Foodie Friday is a restaurant spotlight on one of the most delightful meals I have ever had! Vetri is a world renown restaurant tucked away on a townhouse lined street in center city that I have been dying to go to for about a decade. When I started this blog, Phil promised me we’d go to Vetri when I reached 250 followers…thank you ALL for your support because Phil & I enjoyed a SPECTACULAR meal!

Course after course was absolutely beautiful and I couldn’t help smile a bit with each bite. From the complimentary prosecco and small bites while perusing the menu…

…to the pasta and main courses, each plate tasted devine. We had tuna involtini w/pickled fiddle head ferns, a morel sandwich, sweet onion crepe w/truffle fondue, salt baked quail, capretto w/stone milled polenta, & whole fish ‘secondo il mercato.’ And then there was the pasta….

…ramp ravioli, tavalde paccheri w/octopus, spinach gnocchi w/brown butter, almond tortellini w/truffle sauce & ragu bolognese w/pappardelle. And just when I thought there was just no more room, they brought out the desserts…

…cheese plate w/milk toast, pistachio flan w/milk chocolate gelato, chocolate polenta souffle, piccolo pasticceria & strawberry sorbet. If the meal wasn’t amazing enough, chef came out to the table and introduced himself! I am in total awe of Mark Vetri that having the chance to dine at the gem of his restaruant empire was enough, but then to be able to shake his hand…HOLY AWESOMENESS!

I have had some incredible meals in my life & this ranks right up there in my top 5 meals ever! I can’t wait to go back!

 

Happy Friday!

  1. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which
    makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and
    visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
    Outstanding work!
