It took me a while to decide where to go for my birthday dinner, but I finally decided on Arlecchino since we hadn't been there in a long time. It's in McMurray in the old Thompson School House. I decided to write an updated post since the last time I wrote about Arlecchino was April 3013.
Our meal was just as delicious as I remember. We each had a glass of white wine while enjoying bread and dipping oil before ordering. We shared the Smoked Provolone with black winter truffles, arugula, and locatelli appetizer (as usual - we love this starter). Next was the usual side salad (romaine, red leaf, roasted beets, raisins, sunflower seeds, and an aioli from a local goat cheese farm) and then the pasta arrived:
Delicate, fresh fusilli in tomato sauce with fresh basil. Yum!
SP had Sea Bass. It was different than what is on the online menu. It was a generous portion of fish and I think this was the fish in the mustard cream sauce (there were 3 fish options the night we went). He said it was delicious.
I ordered my usual Cottoletta del Monzu (scallopini of veal finished with fresh mozzarella, colossal lump crab, arugula, and toasted pignoli). This is still the best veal I've had at a restaurant. I ate about 2/3 of my meal and enjoyed the other 1/3 for lunch the next day.
The Raspberry Almond Tiramisu. I cannot pass on this. It's one of my favorite restaurant desserts.
Arlecchino is still as tasty as we remember and the service is still very good. Our server was quite helpful when we were trying to decide on wine. The meal was nicely paced. A little more leisurely than some meals, but that's a good thing because of all the food! It's still just a special celebration place for us because of the cost but it's a restaurant we always look forward to since it's a special treat.
