Considering this is the view (well, an early morning version) outside of my window – I thought I’d mentally get cozy with some reliving of dinner last night!
Last night, I went out to dinner at Teatro, here in Boston, with two friends. Teatro is easily one of my favorite restaurants (that I’ve tried!) in the city. I love their small plates and the fact that the menu changes. I had a great time catching up with friends, laughing and indulging in amazing, amazing eats!
We shared 2 small plates and a side to begin with:
This plate was incredible – I’ve never had mozzarella like this. It was so light and creamy, and the peppers had this sweet and sour thing going on that was delicious.
Always a winner. I can’t pass up calamari on a menu…so light and crispy – be careful of the fried hot peppers in there though..spicyy but so good!
Addictive. These are so crispy, delicious and packed with flavor!
For my entree, I was torn between two pizzas – I ended up going with the pizza topped with duck confit, spicy sausage, and pumpkin – simply for the fact that it was a really unique option.
It was really fantastic – balancing the sweetness of the pumpkin, the savory, lux flavor of the duck, and the spiciness of the sauce – I’m a freak for duck so this was naturally a hit with me; their pizzas are ultra-thin crust…I took a bit home…but only so I could save room for…dessert.
We shared two desserts between the 3 of us:
This was delicious – I can’t say I’ve ever had mint ice cream or gelato that was legitimately minty – real mint. It was so refreshing.
This was incredible – my absolute favorite. A moist, dense cake – the richness was cut by the tang of the raspberry and of course…add vanilla gelato and it’s just over the top amazing.
I know I’ve sung the praises of this restaurant before – but they really are fantastic. Food and service are amazing – the staff is so accommodating! – and the atmosphere is cool and relaxed.
Now…to day dream of dark chocolate cake while watching the snow blow by…
