Rose Tattoo Cafe for dinner. I had a feeling this place was going to be fabulous so I restrained myself at the earlier reception and resisted pigging out! I was definitely right.
The Rose Tattoo is a neat place - the decor is much more beautiful than one might imagine for a place with "tattoo" in the title. It has a New Orleans flair, with plants throughout and multiple bars (one non-smoking). Apparently there is a neat upstairs seating area as well - I will have to check this out next time.
My stepdad Steve had the mushroom bisque - very tasty - and the tuna special - rare ahi tuna pan seared over soba noodles served with broccoli rabe in a wasabi flavored jus. Always true to form, my mom got the duck breast, which was served with a blackberry sauce over a fried couscous cake. Since I was still a little full from lunch I ordered the grilled scallop appetizer served with smoked trout salad. The scallops were good but I was happy to receive tastes from both my mom and Steve since their dishes were downright awesome!
Dessert was the best part. We shared a peach cobbler with ice cream and a mini-chocolate cream pie on an oatmeal cookie crust. The cakey crust on the peach cobbler was scrumptious and the chocolate pie was almost as good as Grandma Sarah's. Yummy!
