Can you ever eat too much Italian food?

J and I had a late dinner on Saturday after some errand running and animal rescuing. A new resteraunt opened in a shopping plaza near our house called Posner Park. There are not many locally owned restaurants in my area but I am always excited to try a new one.

I ordered a Blue Moon. The beer list was actually pretty good for a small place. The offered more than your typical Bud/Coors/Corona which is always nice.

They served us two types of bread and both were delicious.

J had the Palazzo Insalata which had chopped greens, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, black olives, feta cheese, and Italian dressing. It was very good. They had an extensive list of side and entree salads that sounded good.

Spinach artichoke dip which was very tasty. It tasted fresh and not as if they opened a can or reheated an already made portion.

My meal was the Shrimp D’Oro. It had: shrimp, crimini mushrooms, tomatoes, garlic, and spinach. It had a light butter sauce on it that was really well seasoned. I loved the addition of the mushrooms which was unusual but very good.

J had the Shrimp Scampi. He liked it.

We of course ordered Connolis to go. They are my favorite dessert of all time and could never turn them down on a menu.

Overall, we both enjoyed this new resteraunt and will eat here again.
