I'll apologize ahead of time; dimly lit, romantic restaurants equal bad, bad pictures...so just ignore some of the weird colors. I promise all of our food looked delicious :)
We skipped the appetizers tonight for two reasons, a.) they have delicious bread with olive oil and b.) I spied a very tempting dessert on the menu...but more on that later. We'll go straight to the salads.
On to entrées, Patrick went with the steak special for the night, a New York Strip topped with crab and served with roasted potatoes and spinach.
He said the steak was pretty good, and well cooked. He is not normally a NY strip kinda person, but it was tasty (I have to agree!). The potatoes were well roasted, but bland and the spinach was the same, well cooked, but bland...almost like someone forgot the salt.
I went with the Veal Involtini, "Pan-roasted over angel hair with mushrooms and a veal reduction cream sauce. Topped with jumbo lump crabmeat."
So, I kind of mentioned a tempting dessert earlier, right? Anyone who knows me, knows I have one major dessert weakness: brownies. Sure, I like other desserts, and I fancy myself a pretty darn good baker, but a warm, ooey, gooey brownie, topped with ice cream? That's the way to this girl's (dessert) heart. I saw on the menu: "Chocolate Pecan Fudge Brownie: Pecan praline ice cream, caramel and white chocolate sauce."
Oh.My.Goodness. This was so, so good. I couldn't really taste the pecan ice cream, but really do you order this for the ice cream? I'll answer for you, no, no you don't. You order this for the piping hot, fudgey deliciousness. I couldn't even eat half of it, but it was worth it.
Patrick's more of a tiramisu guy.
He said it was one of the best tiramisu's that he has ever had, so he really enjoyed that and his big ol' cup of coffee.
Overall, Amerigo's was good. I'm sure we'll go back, but I wouldn't want it again soon. It's more of a "I want pasta" kind of a place.
