Soon we were enjoying a pasta course of Risotto con Gorgonzola & Porcini mushrooms, finished with truffle emulsion and Pappardelle Ragu of Braised Short Ribs, chanterelle mushrooms and Chianti demi-glace. The risotto itself was not cooked enough, but the flavor of the recipe was spot on. The wide pappardelle noodles were coated perfectly with the red wine sauce, with a generous amount of mushrooms and short rib too…delicious! Read more...

The Salmon dish on the other hand was a disgrace. It was “hammered” (over-cooked) quite dry and served with 6 pieces of balsamic onions, dry mashed potatoes and banquet style vegetables. I am quite sure the chefs who let this go out of their kitchen have stopped caring and are just ” working”. I Have coined this phrase a long time ago… CONSCIOUS COMPROMISE. C’mon chefs!!!
