Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to officially announce that a new Friday night tradition has formed. A perfect Friday nights includes: Ru, Me, Wine, Cheese, Meat and Seafood. This week we took the celebrations to Marcello’s in Vaughn. We got there around 7pm and the place was packed! We had to wait 1/2 hour to be seated, but the waiters were nice and I can see that they were doing their best to get people seated as soon as possible.
The wine list wasn’t long nor impressive. We picked a random Riesling from the list and went with it. It was odd that they had the option of ordering a litre of wine? Well, I’ve never ordered a litre of wine at a restaurant before, so that’s exactly what I did. I ordered the litre. I’ve been here before, and was thoroughly impressed by their grilled calamari. Olive oil, with a bit of pesto sauce and balsamic dressing.
We also ordered a platter of antipasto to share. Grilled veggies, olives, meat, cheese over a bed of greens. Perfect for sharing over wine.
Overall, we had a fantastic night. Good food, okay wine, great company.
