First Bite Boulder

Tonight M and I went to Trattoria on Pearl for First Bite Boulder. We opted for the wine pairings instead of the flight of wine. It was so nice to have a fancy dinner together. We haven't had one since Paris. Enjoy the mouth watering pictures below!

M's first course: Rotollino di Melanzane
Rolled eggplant filled with herb goat cheese, served with marinara sauce and basil

My first course: Fonduta con asparaggi e gamberetti
Gulf shrimp, fresh asparagus and leeks in a creamy mascarpone cheese fondue

M's second course: Osso Buco
Braised lamb shank served over risotto with wild mushrooms and fresh broccolini

My second course: Gnocchi di Zucca al burro e salvia
Homemade butternut squash gnocchi tossed with brown butter and sage-lemon sauce

Our desserts: Torta al Cioccolato fondente & Lime Tart-Ooooo Fantasy
