Decadent Meal/ Diet blown...

But oh my Buddah! What a meal! A dear friend took me out for a belated Birthday dinner
at Barolo Grill on 6th ave. here in Denver...You couldn't HAVE a more decadent meal I think
Im not even a drinker but I had a sweet dessert wine that knocked my socks off..I need to ask him again what it was..but woooo!!

Antipasti course:
Bresaola di Lombardia- air cures beef tenderloin with fresh lemon /lime wedges,chopped arugula, pamigiano-reggiano & olive oil ( paper thin beef lightly seasoned with the lemon lime, the cheese was to die for too..yum)


Cuore di lattuga- romain hearts wiht the same cheese as above, focaccia croutons & garlic, lemon & parsley dressing.
( we split both these)

Secondi Piatti:

Agnello con Carciofi-grilled Colorado lamb t-bones with roasted globe artichokes & Sauteed crimini mushrooms ( it was like buttah' I swear...nicely crusted lamb, rich mushroom..nice and med. rare....)

my dining companion had the restaurants signature dish-
L'Anatra al barolo- braised ducking, kalamata olives, garlic-rosemary hashbrown potatoes, grape tomatoes....( very rich and flavorful, )

Assorted wines,, ( hes the wine guy ,not me don't ask..LOL)


Torta di Cioccolato- chocolate brownie with chocolate gelato & chocolate whipped cream. ( this followed a surprise birthday chocolate truffle dusted with powdered sugar, and a dessert drink with some sort of liquor including kalua and heavy cream on top...) the brownie was more of a crumbly rich cake thing...with a caramel glaze over the gelato...fancy ass!!!
just get the heart defibrillator now guys!!

we came in under $200 for the meal..which was good, I'm going to go pass out now and try to sleep it off...

oy vey!!! I love a good meal...back on track tommorow with better eating I say!!!

mmm ya gots ta check it out if yer looking for an impressive meal the wine list is HUGE by the way!!!!

Uff da, your description of your dinner makes my heart labor. I'd eat that in the blink of an eye!
To respond to your previous post, I think I'm coming out of my post-con letdown (OCF was three weeks ago) .. I drew one panel and pasted down a copy of another, and now I've got six pages. Six out of forty.
