Sunset Mona Lisa
This evening, while shell blowers were honoring the sunset, a young man from the table in front of us knelt on one knee and proposed to his lovely lady. It is no secret that, when you mix an incredible view with delicious food, romance is inevitable. Michelin-star-trained corporate chef Paolo della Corte brings his love of Mediterranean food from his Italian homeland with polish and pizzazz. You’ll be blown away by outstanding food, service, and ambience. Burrata cheese oozes when cut; here the ball is wrapped with a bow and served with pesto and tomatoes, a great start for what is yet to come. Another starter is raw beef fillet shavings drizzled with olive oil and served with arugula and shaved Parmesan, perhaps followed by organic arugula salad with pears, cranberries, and honey Champagne vinaigrette. Specials may include chocolate clams, softshell crab skewers, or a five-tuna platter. Pastas and risotto might be paired with white clams, gnocchi with diced salmon, or ravioli stuffed with lamb. Seafood includes roasted salmon, local sea bass, or octopus braised with mushrooms. A unique dining experience can be had with beef fillet or pork chops cooked tableside on hot lava rock. Desserts are not to be missed, no matter how indulgent your dinner. Try the “Almost Cappuccino,” a chocolate-formed coffee cup filled with coffee ice cream, milk foam, and crunchy cocoa. If a fan of the famous Three Tenors from the ’90s, visit on a night when the trio Divo performs live. Valet parking.
