For dinner, we headed to a local wine bar called Formaggio, located in some nondescript strip mall off to the corner. The restaurant itself didn’t look like much from the outside, but it had a nice atmosphere inside. The place was a bit narrow and cramped (and a bit dim, which made for difficult photographing), but I enjoyed it overall. The food was fabulous.

Above, we have the grilled vegetable napoleon, made with portabella mushroom, eggplant, zucchini, roasted peppers, caramelized onions, truffle oil and goat cheese. It was definitely as wonderful as it sounds. I loved grilled veggies – the smokey flavor really brings out the natural sweetness of the vegetables. The goat cheese added a nice pungent kick.

The rest:

Seafood crepes mornay – thin crepes filled with crab, shrimp, lobster and scallops. Divine! Creamy, rich and delicious, this was definitely a highlight.

And finally, there was the trio of bruschetta – the simple and carefree tomato and basil, earthy and fabulous portabella mushroom with truffle oil, and the aforementioned winning combination of roased peppers with goat cheese. All were quite delicious.

If I lived near this restaurant, it would definitely be one I’d go back to, and often. ♥
