My wife had the prix fixe Italian dinner. She started out with an arugula salad that was very good. Main course was a braised veal... god, but didn't knock her socks off. Our niece had the ravioli which we all enjoyed sampling. I had the tuna tatare... great!! (I know you are not fond of sushi.) The two of us both ordered the pork chop. It was outstanding. I decided early to get the entree. When she announced she was getting the same, I was disappointed that there was one less item for me to sample.
The specials were a rack of lamb and another lamb preparation. Both sounded great, but I just had lamb the other night and decided to stick with the pork. The wine... a Barolo suggested to us was very enjoyable.
All of us loved the meal. My wife and I will definitely return to our latest favorite restaurant. (The niece lives in Florida).
I would love to find a good Inn near JA.
prosciutto/mozz salad, gnocchi, salt cod ravioli....those are my current faves. if you search JA on this board, you will find many posts. i have never been on a thursday night for the special italian menu, but i hear its wonderful- especially the value.
ENJOY and please report back!
