Julian and I went to Gigi’s yesterday and ordered the parmesan fries and cheese plate as appetizers and the BARBINA salad (Organic Baby Greens, Roasted Beets, Butternut Squash, Mushrooms, Coach Farm Goat Cheese, Toasted Walnuts and Gigi Sherry-Shallot Vinaigrette) and ANGOLOTTI (Butternut Squash and Mascarpone Filled Ravioli, Parmesan, and Crumbled Amaretti). The fries were warm and crunchy, but with less parmesan than they usually come with and the cheese plate came on a wooden cutting board with grapes, apple butter, and almonds. Though it would have been nice if each cheese came with a label. The butternut squash ravioli was heavenly and the salad was nicely prepared with an added touch of walnuts that was diced into small pieces. I don’t much care for beets, but they were easy to avoid. The dressing was also quite light and delicious. We really enjoyed ourselves.
Note: the BIANCA skizza (Coach Farm Goat Cheese, Mozzarella, Gigi Fig Jam preserve, Pear, Arugula and White Truffle Oil) is also a unique pizza that is a must try!
