I ordered Crostini Douxelles – crunchy garlic toast layered with Portobello mushroom pate, capers, smoked almonds, Romano cheese and roasted red peppers. It was served with a side salad made with super-fresh greens and delicious vinegarette dressing. My husband ordered Portobello Mushroom sandwich – marinated and grilled Portobello mushroom with grilled onions, red peppers and pesto mayo, served on a grilled ciabatta buns. Our meals were outstanding!
