November Dine Around

Almost 50 people were on hand last month our monthly Dine-Around. This almost record setting turnout was treated to some fabulous cuisine at two popular Plaza area restaurants.

Our first stop was Fiorella’s Jack Stack .From the moment we arrived; we knew we were in for a treat!! The aroma of smoked meats enveloped us as we walked through the restaurant. We were seated on the incredibly comfortable new patio overlooking Brush Creek. There was a cozy fire pit in the middle of the patio, and glowing torchieres for light. It was the perfect night and the perfect setting for some absolutely wonderful food! We started off with some appetizers. The large, crispy, sweet onion rings were a hit among the crowd! The smoked ribs were so tender they literally fell off the bone! The burnt ends were smoked to perfection and just melted in our mouths! The entire staff was extremely courteous and accommodating. They certainly gave us the VIP treatment! This is the ideal place to enjoy barbecue! More information about Fiorella's


Our next stop was the Italian restaurant, Buca di Beppo, also on the Plaza! This unique restaurant is situated below street level. We were escorted to our tables within the vibrantly decorated dining rooms of this original restaurant. Here we were treated to mammoth sized portions of Spaghetti with meatballs; Melt in your mouth Chicken parmesan and fettuccine Alfredo. The meatballs boasted a fresh, savory flavor that was complemented nicely by the sauce. The Chicken parmesan was also very appealing! As if that were not enough to fill us up for the evening, we were then presented with some extra special desserts! We were all quite impressed with the dolce platter, a combination dessert platter meant to be shared! It featured the rich, decadent double dark chocolate cake, homemade crustless cheesecake, tiramisu drenched in rum and chocolate cannoli. It is difficult to say which my favorite was as they all were quite unique and flavorful. The perfect end to the perfect Italian meal! More information about Buca di Beppo
