Fall is FINALLY right here and the flavors of fall are simply as lovely as the colours! It is time for leather-based boots (sure, even in Phoenix), pumpkin lattes and savory spices. So, POSTINO lately invited us to come back over and take a look at THEIR model of what fall meals means to them.
There’s at all times an instantaneous and welcoming sense of group at Postino Kierland. Buyers can sit on the exterior bar and have a fast sip and a snack, whereas the date nighters and dinner teams can take an inviting seat inside or on the balcony.
The meals is lighter Italian fare, Bruschetta. Soup and Salad. Charcuterie. Panini. GREAT wines. It is PERFECT for us, as we just about LIVED on salami, cheese, bread and wine once we visited Italy. We walked in and it was a mere second or two earlier than we have been greeted, sat and supplied a glass of wine.
We began with the Butcher’s Block, which was one of many BIGGEST and most scrumptious charcuterie boards I’ve seen. Artisan meats and cheeses, smoked almond hummus, asparagus, contemporary olives, nuts, dried fruits and toasted crostini. I’ve paid much more for boards that include loads much less and do not style NEARLY nearly as good as this. Each merchandise was positioned on this large board with respect and love for all of the meals we have been about to eat. The wine went down easily and shortly I used to be nearly full from the board, however we have been determined to attempt a number of the attractive bruschetta recipes that have been being ready.
I really like Postino’s Bruschetta menu, as a result of you possibly can select 4 of any mixture of their dozen or so gadgets. From easy and simple like mozzarella, tomato and basil, to excessive like burrata, bacon, arugula and tomato, there’s one thing for everybody. Among the nice fall theme gadgets embody Brie and Apples with Fig Unfold, Prosciutto with Fig and Mascarpone, and Beets, Goat Cheese, Contemporary Arugula and Spiced Pecans! We selected these and a few others together with Salmon and Pesto, and Roasted Peppers with Goat Cheese.
They have been ALL superb, and I fell in LOVE with the Beet, Goat Cheese and Contemporary Arugula, due to the attractive candy crunch that the spiced pecans gave it.
We won’t wait to return. The service, the ambiance and the meals have been superb. Postino cares about its group and its meals. Subsequent time we’d even convey the kiddo…however we’ll most likely need to order him his personal Butcher Block!
