Yes, the charming little spot at 18 Market Space (that once housed La Paz) is occupied again. Mistero Bar and Italian Grille had their soft opening last night so I mosied over to buy myself dinner and check out the new kid on the block.
I snagged a stool at the bar and the bartender, Matt, quickly took my drink order. After lingering over the menu for a bit and enjoying a few sips of my Manhattan, I decided to start with some bruschetta.
Buttery, toasted Italian bread with marinated tomatoes, greens, shaved Parmesan and balsamic glaze. I didn’t intend to, but it was so good I ate the entire appetizer. Despite the big bowl of Fettuccine Giotto being prepared for me in the kitchen.
Egg noodle pasta, char grilled chicken and fresh broccoli all covered in Parmesan Alfredo sauce. It was exactly what I wanted and exactly what you think of when you order fettuccine with Alfredo sauce. I would have cleaned my plate, but a couple sitting down the bar from me had ordered some tiramisu for dessert and it just looked too good to pass up.
I was incredibly pleased with my meal and the service. I was also lucky enough to have some very pleasant folks sitting at the bar with me. I headed home around 7:30, and it had just started to pick up. I predict this is going to be a very popular spot. Next time I visit I will definitely have the boyfriend in tow and will make sure to check out the second floor. The Grand Opening is being celebrated today with doors opening at 11 am. And it is Friday, why not head over for lunch or dinner to kick off your weekend?
