Mezzo

Last weekend we went with S&R to Mezzo for dinner. We've been there several times and always enjoy tasty food and cocktails. Here's what we enjoyed this time:
I had chardonnay, S had a red wine, and SP & R, the gin drinkers, enjoyed a gin cocktail called Phantom's Revenge but we do not recall the ingredients. It was pretty. The drink & the glass (there was pretty etched design on the glass).
SP started with Fried Eggplant (golden raisin and pine nut relish, roasted eggplant puree, arugula, balsamic reduction).
R started with Beef Tartare (onion and garlic agrodolce, crispy garlic, dijon emulsion, espellette pepper, salt & vinegar chips). S had the Arancini (smoked carrot, jalapeno, parsley) but I didn't take a photo.
I chose Burrata (treviso, frisee, shaved root vegetables, champagne vinaigrette, garlic croutons, basil pesto). Yes, the croutons and pesto are on the side for me. Garlic. Yuck.
For my entree, I chose Lamb Bolognese (tortiglioni, tomato, Parmesan). So good.
Surprising me, SP chose a pasta dish: Linguine (olive, anchovy, caper, artichoke, olive oil, garlic, lemon, parsley, pistachio).
For dessert SP and R chose Lemon Semifreddo (pistachio financier, raspberry-blood orange syrup). The lemon semifreddo was yummy (I stole a bite).
S & I chose Chocolate Crema (stracciatella ice cream, salted caramel, chocolate shortbread crumble). This was delicious but so dense and rich. I could manage only half of it and I brought the rest home.

We all like Mezzo. The food is good, the service is good, meals are nicely paced, and this time was no exception.
