Going in for Seconds

I eat out a lot, and when I do, I really get excited when I can go to a restaurant and be assured that the food will be the same as the last time I was there.
I'll get a taste for something and when I want it, I want it bad! So thanks to the well greased partnership of local restauranteur Lirim Jacobi and Chef Todd English, I can go and indulge in the sumptuous butternut squash lasagna with herb ricotta and maple creme and the delectable and ever so craving inducing Todd English signature fig and prosciutto flatbread. The flatbread is studded with fig jam, gorgonzola dolce, fontina, prosciutto on a crispy rosemary crust and drizzled with a balsamic reduction. Oh my, my mouth is watering!
Another of my favorites is the Asparagus Frites.... Perfectly crisp and tender at the same time, served with a honey and mustard aioli. Mmm! Pour me a glass of Pinot Grigio and I'm in heaven.
