My treat for Mother’s Day was a trip to Coombs for an afternoon at Goat on the Roof and lunch at Cuckoo Trattoria. This, to anyone in reading distance, is the place for extra special food.
We ordered our drinks and decided on a ‘LIGHT’ APPETIZER. After all Don had steaks at home for dinner. Well, that didn’t work out and I will explain.
Don and I thought we would share a Focaccio toast with a Mushroom Parmesan cream and Kelly ordered a Pizza (with about 6 kinds of meat) and a side of bruschetta. It came out and I have to tell you the Mushroom Parmesan Cream is to be absolutely obsessive. We dug in believe me.
Kelly’s pizza look absolutely super and she loved every bit of it. In fact a couple of pieces came home with her. We also had to order a lovely special desert for Mother’s Day. We are beggars for punishment. So much so, we had another round of drinks. Our server was spot on terrific.
We wanted to spend even more time there on the expansive patio but thought we should waddle out. We did, however, meet and chat with Chef Fausto. He is such a wonderful man. I asked if he would share his recipe for the Mushroom Parmesan cream and he said he would come to our home and make it there. We WILL hold him to that you can be sure. I wanted to place it on my Damn I can Do This site. Perhaps another day.
As we were leaving the line up to get in was VERY long. Fabulous place for atmosphere and food.
Yes, yes, yes, we will return and the sooner the better.
