There has been some fun stuff in the food world this week; several restaurants have updated and added new seasonal menu items that will have limited availability, Brio Tuscan Grille at Town Center is on that list. I was happy to get a sneak peek at what will be offered, starting August 8th to October 1st a lineup of fun dishes to take you into the fall in excellent style.
We started off with lovely Bruschetta appetizer of Smokey Onion Jam with a grilled Asparagus spear and topped with Pancetta. It only got better from there, a generous plate of Chicken, Mozzarella Ravioli arrived at our table much to our delight. It was every bit as delightful as it looked.
Our next two dishes were perhaps our favorites, the Grilled Balsamic Pork Chop and the Steak Saltimbocca. The chop served with Sweet potatoes, mushrooms, pancetta, Brussels sprouts, caramelized onion, maple balsamic vinaigrette, was one of the best pork chops I have tasted in a while. Then there was the steak, stuffed with prosciutto and provolone, crispy fingerlings, chile flake, fried sage, broccolini, Marsala sauce. Not a fan of Marsala, the blend here was quite a pallet pleasing item for me plus provided a nice dipping sauce for the fingerlings.
Just when we were ready to tap out, a beautiful dessert arrived. Snickerdoodle Peach Cobbler served warm with vanilla bean gelato, powdered sugar. We knew we needed to make room for this dessert and we did, finishing it off in record time. Sweet and warm the gelato a nicer addition than whipped cream or ice cream.
There is also a lineup of combo plates available from August 8th to October 20th. Treat your self, and if you have not eaten at Brio Tuscan Grille, click on the above link to see all the offerings. I promise you will not regret it.
