It will be my first time to go to Postrio and I would like to know what to expect and what to order. I heard that this restaurant is quite expensive. Any comments would be most welcome.
Thanks. Maria

      I went there for the first time this past Monday. From what the menu looks like it is kind of an italian/asian fusion. I had a lamb chop/slivers of lamb loin--medium rare. It was very good, the meat towards the bone of the chop was tender and flavorful, and the sauce/mashed squash went with it very well. Across the table from us someone ordered a whole red snapper with garlic vermicelli noodles. Though it looked kind of impressive, it seemed kind of out of place for the atmosphere of the restaurant (i.e., having to pick at the whole deep fried snapper). I'd go with the meat dishes there, though I was tempted to order the squab, since I haven't had squab before.

      I'd highly recommend the dessert plate, you can sample most of the desserts on the menu for about $9.50 per person. Entrees range from 30-40 range.
