Thanks to Brio Tuscan Grille, my husband and I were invited for a Media Dine to Taste Test a “Tale of Two Risottos” which included Cold Water Maine lobster and Sautéed Shrimp Dish, and a Seared Sea Scallops and a Roasted Vegetable Ratatouille Dish.
Both of these Seafood Risottos are finished with fresh basil and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and are available for a limited time at $19.95.
Of course we just didn’t try an entree during the visit, and our dinner began with a friendly greeting, gorgeous atmosphere, and some wine samplings.
Our helpful and informative server for the evening was Jordan and she started us off with Brio Tuscan Grille freshly made bread options.
These included Flax Seed Crackers as well as Sough Dough Bread. Both had an excellent flavor.
Then it was onto the appetizer. We decided to go with a seafood option and made a great choice in the Calamari.
It not only came with a cream and marinara sauce, but there was also breaded Pepperoncini intermingled with the Calamari pieces.
Then it was time for the main event, our Brio “Tale of Two Risottos”. Let me just say that there was no sharing between hubby and me.
He had been eyeing that Lobster on the menu and when it came out, he let me have a microscopic taste. I don’t blame him though, it was good.
As for mine, the Seared Sea Scallops were huge and I enjoyed the texture of the Ratatouille and the Risotto.
I made an excellent pick as well and nearly cleared my plate. However, I did decide to save some room for something sweet and also wanted take a home a few of those impressive Scallops to show my Mother In Law (It is her favorite pick of Seafood).
The grand finale was looking at the dessert platter, and honestly it wasn’t too hard to choose a treat. My husband LOVES Cheesecake and I am a big fan of Key Lime.
We were not disappointed in our picks and we did not leave any leftovers.
To sum up our dining experience, I was impressed by the level of service, the quickness of the staff, and the flavor of the food.
The atmosphere was a relaxing spot for a date night and for the taste and price, I think a “Tale of Two Risottos” is an awesome value.
