Yet again, reviewing a chain. Disappointed in my non diverse culinary adventures of late, but a friend recommended that we try the food specifically for happy hour. Being that we never can make happy hour anyway, we decided to go for just deener.

1. Lobster bisque – creamier and less tangy taste compared to the tomato bisque with small bits of lobster
2. Tomato bisque – creamy, tangy and not too salty. yo quiero
3. Seasonal Bruschetta, the “PLT” – It’s too bad that this is seasonal or I’d probably get this type bruschetta each time. It consists of pancetta, lettuce and tomato. So you have the toasty crunch of the bread, the sweet tang of the sun dried tomato, the ooey gooey of the mozzarella, and a splash of basalmic vinegar and sprinkle of parm. wa la! masterpiece and texturegasm.
4. Shrimp and Scallop Linguini – I could tell the pasta was fresh and perfectly cooked, but I think this suits those of the salty faction. Very savory flavors.
5. The Chef’s special pasta and mussels – same to this dish. well cooked pasta but leans to the salty side.

Conclusion: Commercialized, Americanized Italian food, but who’s says I can’t like that. It’s like how I still like McDonald’s so-called “fish” sammiches. I think I should stick with the original recommendation, however, and just go with happy hour. 2.5/5 Beeps
