This was, of course, laundry day and I finished wrapping the Christmas stocking treats for the ‘kids’. We sat on the deck and read for a bit, then came in to watch Rock the Block to see if our girl, Jasmine Roth, would take the trophy. SHE DID. Then we changed and went to dinner at one of our most favourite restaurants here on the Island, Sarento’s On The Beach.
We were quite early (as we were hoping we would get our requested waterfront table) and were assured we would but we would have to wait in the private waiting room. We ordered a beverage and I had a glass of Pinot Grigio from Zenato, Spain. This was exquisite for me and Don ordered his beer.
When the allotted time came, we were escorted to our beautiful waterfront table, just as the sun was beginning its descent into the ocean. Our young server, Brayden came with our drinks and took our dinner order. Don ordered the Osso Bucco with baby carrots, haricot verts, risotto and a very rich gravy. The size of the meat was huge and looked amazing.
The inexperience of our young server showed when he brought me a different wine than what I originally ordered. I did not say anything as it wasn’t going to alter our evening. I ordered the grilled mixed seafood and it was Scallops, Shrimp (huge), and white fish over the most incredible mushroom risotto. OMG! I left about 3 grains of rice on my plate. Not to be finished yet, we ordered (as we always do) Creme Brulee with two spoons. Let me assure you that if I could have, I would have licked the dish, but I drank my coffee instead.
Believe me when I tell you we waddled out to the car and came home, with the top down and said, once more, thank you for a wonderful day.
