The New Davinci
DaVinci has changed hands, and took out the booths, but left Dean Martin's special booth for those making reservations. People have traveled from all over for Deans seat! The place has been redone with gorgeous wooden floors and tables with padded chairs. Walls are olive and vanilla and have DaVinci sketches displayed around the room. There are tan and white linens, and lovely table settings, under exquisite chandeliers. And the great photos of the "Rat Pack" are of great interest, also with it all, they even bake their own bread served in baskets. The serving pieces are beautiful and my lunch was scrumptious!
I chose a magnificent Lobster Linguini with a Sea Bass topping, and it was deliciously made, but there were also salads, sandwiches, and kabobs concocted with lamb, chicken or beef. In addition there was pan-roasted salmon.
On the dinner menu, along with various pastas were Dean Martin's Filet Mingnon with lobster added; also Duck, Braised Veal Shank, and Monkfish; in addition to Paella. Many vegetable dishes were served on the dinner menu, as were salads.
In the evening, as the candles are lighted, look up at the chandelier and see the stars. The Chef is Jason Fullilove with the DaVinci Culinary team. I think you are in for a pleasant surprise.
