Lovely evening at Genoa

We enjoyed such a wonderful evening at Genoa restaurant last night, and I wanted to put it back on everyone's radar. The setting was lovely, the food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious, and the service was attentive, friendly and perfectly appropriate. If you haven't visited Genoa in years, please, please do yourself a favor and go back!!

      I started the evening with the Tonno, which was very moist and flavorful. The next course was the Capellini which was wonderful! The smoke and cod chorizo made such a difference! My husband said that the chèvre gnocchi was the best dish of the night. I then followed that with the beet salad, which was absolutely gorgeous, and for the entree, I enjoyed the branzino. We finished the night with olive oil cake with blood orange sorbet. I wish I could remember the wine pairings - the one with the capellini was especially good as it was slightly sweet, a perfect complement to the salty, rich capellini.
