When: 2006

Very contemporary setting and food.

Dinner for 2 with wine 74

Wed made a dinner reservation at 8:30 at Gallery at the suggestion of our hotel. People were out and about in bars and pizza places. We walked by Gallery and saw only one couple there. Michael asked if it was more important to be with people or eat good food and I choose good food. So we went back to Gallery.

It is a contemporary looking restaurant with modern takes on traditional food, every dish presented beautifully.

We were given an amuse bouche of a round of soft cheese in a nest of ultra thin crisp noodle threads with a drizzle of berry sauce on the side of the plate.

Then we share grilled shrimp on fagioli seasoned with rosemary, followed by risotto with mushrooms and meat.

Michael had a piece of fish (troncho) simply seasoned and roasted, surrounded by small roasted potatoes and nicoise olives. I had breaded shrimp on a skewer with a small round mold of couscous and a curry paste sauce served in a spoon on the side. This was accompanied by a very nice white wine from the area.

I think dolce would have been wonderful, but neither of us had room.
