This restaurant now, RDG + Bar Annie, formerly Cafe Annie revamped and on steriods. RDG are the initials of the executive chef, "Robert Del Grande". My last hit on restaurant week. I attempted going on a sunday with a girlfriend, turns out they close at 8pm. As a matter of fact, most restaurants on restaurant week close early, never knew it. My second attempt, made with reservations, landed us here on Friday with a group of friends, ready to enjoy this extravagantly stylish restaurant. I love absolutely loved the interior design, stylish and trendy, impressive.
We order the Faust red wine, very good and only $115 a bottle. We shared that amongst 5 people, not bad! I got the Summer Black Berry Salad with Greens and Smoked Cheddar Dressing. This salad was very good and it had blue cheese, I didn't notice and I hate blue cheese.
I always find it odd when fine dining restaurants serve skirt steak, but this is what I got. Wood Grilled Skirt Steak With Tomato Sofrito & Herb Olive Oil / Giant Corona Beans. I was actually considering the Sweet Potato Enchiladas, but our server recommended the skirt steak. It was good actually, very good. But, I had a few bites as I was already getting full, given I had 2 pieces of bread. Bread was good, couldn't resist.
I got the Chocolate and Coffee Ice Cream Sandwich with Hot Fudge Sauce, which I thought was good, the chocolate cookie was delicious...but I was so full, I about exploded...then I had some...
Raspberry Mousse with Cocoa Almond Meringue Cookie. The raspberry mousse was so good. The cookie was bland.
