A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

IMG_9860We were exhausted after running around the whole day, so we decided to eat relatively close to the hotel. We happened upon Remi for dinner.

IMG_9857They have a very colorful decor with high ceilings – really quite stunning.

IMG_9858I liked that the bread basket had so many options.

IMG_9859A little goat cheese spread for the bread.

IMG_9861I started with the la classica caprese salad ($17). For this price I would have liked to have seen some fresher tomatoes, my were under ripe.

IMG_9862We ordered the Costolette di Agnello alla Griglia con Patate al Rosmarino ($39.50) Grilled lamb chop drizzled with tuscan olive oil served with rosemary flavored roasted potatoes. Really lovely presentation and the lamb was delicious.

IMG_9863The Tagliatelle alla Bolognese ($24.50) Tagliatelle pasta with Bolognese sauce had ribbon thin pasta with just the right amount of sauce. I wish that the sauce had a little more depth to it, but overall a good dish.

The Pappardelle al Telefono in Salsa Rosa ($24.50) Wide ribbon pasta pappardelle in a pink tomato sauce with melted mozzarella cheese and basil. The pasta was delicious, perfectly al dente.

IMG_9865The Tagliolini al Limone con Granseola ed Asparagi Arrosto ($27.50) Thin tagliolini pasta in a lemon sauce with roasted asparagus tips and lump crab meat. Really nice flavors in this dish and the crab meat really stole the show. The service here was good, our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. Our food was served promptly and someone was always close by if we needed anything. There was a mix of people dining tonight, some couples, a few tourists – we had the unfortunate luck of sitting right next to another table of 4 who was quite rowdy – a couple was taking the man’s parents out for dinner. Not only were they loud but I could hear the guy chewing and smacking his food all the way over where I was sitting. Good thing that we were almost done by the time they sat down, otherwise, it could have been a very long meal. While the food and service were good, I’m not sure that it would be worth a second trip here, there just wasn’t that “wow” factor.
