We ate there for my birthday, as you may recall. Last night we got a text from them offering us a big discount to come for our wedding anniversary in December. I made the reservation.

Nancy had the braised beef special and today she is making a copy cat and it already smells delightful.

Nancy had the scallops and they were very good. They have this Valentines Day menu going through Monday and she said Nancy was the first to order scallops. I went with my usual steak and wish I had gotten the lamb chops. My steak was not rare but didn’t send it back. I like more dressing on the salad but it was still good.

Good Lord, John! Everything looks incredible, including your steak, starting with that beautiful martini! Please tell me it was gin!

No, it was a happy hour vodka martini. I asked what vodka they used and it is Monarch! It tasted like Grey Goose. My steak had a bit of a burn on it, was medium when I asked for rare, but didn’t send it back.

tell James Bond…

I will, and I will also tell him that classic martinis must never be shaken, ONLY stirred! Cocktails that should be shaken have mixers in them, not all-alcohol cocktails, such as a martini. Which is gin and vermouth with olive garnish.

You're welcome. :food-and-drink007_2

P.S. The cocktail made with vodka, vermouth and an olive garnish really needs to have a new name. How about the "James Bond"? And don't get me started about fru-fru drinks called "martinis"! Chocolate??? Puh-leese!

We had an errand to run that took us past Toscano’s so decided on a happy hour stop and early dinner. I had the ribeye and Caesar salad and Nancy the salmon with a ramp sauce and a beet salad. It was all good.

We were just notified they changed their menu. It looks like they took the ribeye off and replaced it with a New York Strip. 😢
