to the list of places we have tried for dinner in Sarasota... good - not spectacular but a good option for when we say to ourselves "where haven't we been in a while" and are bored with the regular places during the winter....
MoZaic on Main Street around the corner from the Opera House-
We had never been there before but our friends had - they were pretty neutral about this choice but it was Sunday so there was some restriction on choices --- Anyway here is what it looked like- going with dessert first because those were the most photogenic courses LOL
chocolate tart with raspberry-
two ice creams times two-
molten chocolate below -
and now back to the menu for starters and dinner choices-
Gene and I had crab cakes (he for entree and me for a starter)
this might be the winning dish of the night - a crab salad with fresh dressing with lemon and mint - it was excellent! MaryAnn was kind enough to share so we could taste the flavors...
Phil ordered the shrimp starter -
Gene's starter New England clam chowder-
Phil and MaryAnn both had the lamb chops and I had the risotto as a main-
as usual we closed the place down with our conversation flowing easily over the three hour meal... when we arrived the dining room (located off to the left of the photo) was full LOL but we outlasted them all - they brought in the outdoor tables and chairs and the two last servers were sitting at the bar just hanging out until we wrapped things up - LOL- with still much more to discuss...
tonight we catch up with Lew & Ellie in St Pete... and then tomorrow back to school LOL and Wednesday back to the great white north... except we are hoping we won't have white! so stay tuned...
