Recently I was invited to have lunch at Brio Tuscan Grille and try out their new menu items and wanted to share them with you!
For those of you that aren't familiar with Burrata - here's the difference: Fresh mozzarella is a semi-soft Italian cheese made from cow or buffalo milk. Burrata cheese takes the mozzarella one step further - it's mozzarella that's formed into a pouch and then filled with soft, stringy curd and cream.
What that means - when you cut into this - an ooey gooey deliciousness falls out!
We decided to share a dessert - and ended with a Flourless Chocolate Torte ($6.95). This was served with Marcona almonds, EVOO and a side of olive oil gelato. This fell short for both of us - the torte was good but the olive oil gelato and EVOO sprinkling - just didn't work. I normally like a little savory with a little sweet but I didn't dig this one.
Why Should You Go? There were some highlights that were truly amazing - that Burrata & Ciabatta was so good - I could just have that all day long - with a side of the creamed spinach and kale - so delicious. I would definitely go back and enjoy it all over again!
