Tre Visi

September12

Not surprizingly we celebrate our wedding anniversary with a dinner date.  I remember back to our initial wedding anniversary-it was first time that we had left our new born daughter with a sitter.  We dined at Cibo’s which used to be in  the basement of the Townsite Building. I recall having the most delicious capaccio and then not sleeping all night long with worry that the garlic would stay with me, as I was nursing.  Didn’t even phase her……

We are partial to Italian and other Mediterranean food and chose Tre Visi for dinner.  Or I should say that I chose-D told the guys at work that it was a a Vietnamese restaurant.  Tre Visi one of the few restaurants on the east side of Main St that has had any longevity.  We had enjoyed its proximity to the theatre on previous visits.  The place was bustling on this Thursday night but our table was waiting and we were graciously served by a beautiful and attentive waitress.

Dinner started with a delicious little bread basket.  We were tempted to order more but were glad that we resisted because our dinners were so satisfying.  We started with Calamari that were huge and yet not too chewy and served absolutely piping hot which is a feat for this delicate seafood.  D professed that they might have been the best that he has ever tasted and that would be saying a lot since he has sampled the same in Greece and Italy.  For our pasta course we shared gnocchi that were tossed in a creamy pesto sauce.  The gnocchi had been made just a few hours previously and it was not hard to detect.  They were firm and yet tender and held onto the amazing, rich sauce.

For the our main dishes,  D ordered shrimp and scallops in a saffron cream sauce on angel hair pasta and I chose chicken and artichokes in a Madeira sauce.  I was pleased with mine but blown away by D’s and tried to resist too many forkfuls.  We chose an Argentinean Malbec to accompany our dinner and corked it up to share one last glass at home.  What a civilised concept!

Kath’s quote: “These things are just plain annoying. After all the trouble you go to, you get about as much actual “food” out of eating an artichoke as you would from licking 30 or 40 postage stamps. Have the shrimp cocktail instead.”-Miss Piggy
