After this afternoon's fun matinée of Theater Works' 'Midsummer' (a play with songs), we went to Carbone's Ristorante for their Taste of Hartford menu [$20.16]. The restaurant was a good choice and the menu had several good choices. The food was excellent! The service was excellent and our need for special seating was handled very appropriately.
I started with the Summer Caprese Salad of native tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, evoo and a balsamic reduction. Then proceeded the main course of Shrimp Scampi with four large sauted shrimp, white wine lemon caper sauce over fresh linguini. The wine special was a bottle of fine Pinot Grigio [$20.16].
Dessert was a terrific Torta di Angelo of chocolate hazelnut ganache, chocolate mousse, raspberry and chocolate sauce.
