SUMMER ISN'T OVER---YET
Saturday, November 02, 2013
(FOR THOSE INTERESTED--THEY ARE NORMAL PORTIONS AND THAT IS ALL I EAT--FOR THE REST OF THE 6 AND 1/2 DAYS I'M ON MY DIET.)
Though it had been there for years I didn't discover the Cafe Vico until I celebrated my 19th Leap Year in 2012 when I had a list of restaurants that I hadn't eaten in and wanted to visit. I reviewed it back then for yelp giving it 5 stars.
This past June I got an email that the Cafe Vico was going to offer 2-4-1 lunches and Allen and I have been going there every Thursday since June 20--as of last Thursday, October 31, we have been there 20 times and have had ordered 40 different lunches.
You can check out their lunch and dinner menu at http://cafevicorestaurant.com/ plus every week they offered us 2 specials. As of this past Thursday I have had only one less than excellent meal and that was an Osso Bocca taht was a bit too salty but aside from that all the lunches were/are top drawer. They do serve a top of the line lasagna and all their pasta dishes melt in your mouth.
This past Thursday I had Talipia francese that was served on a green pasta, the dish being sweet and tart at the same time. Allen had the Cappalini Scampi which he really likes though I prefer the Linguini ala Pescatore with shrimp, scallops and calamari in spicy tomato sauce though I usually have it made in garlic and oil.
We were sort of celebrating our last lunch and the end of summer until we were leaving when I noticed on the board "2-4-1 lunch until November 30"! LOOKS LIKE SUMMER ISN'T OVER YET!!!!!
