Restaurant Review - Alforno's 6/25/10

New England Foodie's restaurant critic has been very lax in his duties.  Sorry for the delay!

For our anniversary, we went to one of our Top 2 restaurant's in the world, Alforno's in Providence, RI.  This was the restaurant that we went to after getting engaged and we've been back a few times to celebrate our anniversary.  Alforno's has been recognized (literally) as one of the best restaurants in the world.  It is the place that (literally) invented the grilled pizza.

I'll keep this short and sweet:

Jeanne had:
  • Stuffed squash blossom appetizer
  • Entre was a plate that included pork sausage and pork tenderloin with pickled cherries

Tony had:
  • Oysters on the half shell
  • The "Dirty Steak" (cooked right in the coals of hardwood fire).  Served with garlic mashed potatoes and a sweet and spicy reduction
For dessert we shared a fresh rhubarb tart served with creme anglaise.

Everything was perfect.  One of the most satisfying meals we've had in a restaurant!  A bit on the expensive side, but worth it....
