After a martini pit stop and appetizer at Asado, we trekked over to Il Fiasco on Tuesday night. We were surprised by the changes in the interior—the bar was moved to the back of the main room of the restaurant and the décor and lighting seemed more lackluster, less warm than in the past. I remember the lighting, mood and artwork had a more romantic feel previously. However the changes were no matter. Our friendly server was delightful. The diverse menu was perfect in size; not too large and overwhelming, but not too limited either. My husband settled on a filet mignon and I went for the scallops and prawns. We kicked it off with terrific Caesar salads and accompanied our meal with yummy Zenato Ripassa. We both agreed that our Caesars were perfect—just the right size. My scallops and prawns had a lemon butter preparation with some jazzy rice and broccolini. The seafood was succulent and smooth. Rick’s steak was tender and lovely. We watched the main dining room fill with patrons as we enjoyed our meal and celebration. Birthday parties and family dinners abounded with happy laughter and a low key, relaxed, homey vibe.
Whenever my husband and I get a night out locally like this, we always marvel at the diversity of the fine dining scene. We eagerly follow the latest and greatest on the growing
