Last night, we ate at a restaurant called North in the Cherry Creek area of Denver. Think that's what the area is called. In any case, it was a big scale, urban Italian trattoria...and it was delish.
I started with a warm artichoke heart appetizer. It was grilled, topped with parmesan and drizzled with truffle oil and balsamic vinnegar. Truly, a great dish.
Moving on, for my main dish I had rissotto with seared scallops and asparagus. Though, each piece of rice was not distinct and not all al dente, it was seasoned spectacularly and the scallops were fantastic.
Michael had the osso bucco which was tender and tasty and Nikos had the seared duck, which was chewy. I won out on the meal.
For dessert, we split a tirra missou, cheesecake and sorbet. None of our choices were standouts, but the sorbet was better than the rest.
Overall, a good meal in a nice atmosphere with great service.
Tonight is steak...probably at Elways. Hope he can cook as well as he quarterbacked.
