On Easter Sunday this year, we shared perhaps the most amazing meal we’ve all ever had at Bovio Ristorante in La Morra, Italy. From the astounding views to the incredible wine (list) to the second-to-none food this place had everything anyone would want in an exquisite dining experience. A small glimpse of our five course, four hour lunch follows.
We enjoyed a delicious hot pepper infused bloody mary at the Corner Room before a 5pm viewing of The Grand Budapest Hotel, which we LOVED, followed by a lovely dinner at Walter’s. Oh how we love happy hour at the Corner Room, and the melt-in-your-mouth beef short ribs served at Walter’s. It is, however, very difficult for each of us to order the same meal due to our passion for food, flavors, and the simple joy in two pieces of art. Rarely craving red meat we opted for the filet mignon with barely a hint of stilton in the perhaps too mildly flavored onion jam as our second entree. It’s always delicious food at Walter’s once you get past the elevator music and the newly constructed architectural eyesore hotel across the street (just look away!). The next time you’re walking the streets of Portland craving short ribs for dinner, I highly recommend giving Walter’s a chance.
Totally hooked on the Hendricks Cucumber Basil Martini… Oh my!!! It’s perfectly smooth, cool, refreshing, and, believe it or not, does not taste like a gin martini. DiMillo’s might be one of my favorite locally toured spots! More to come regarding their food….
