I am simply in love with Deerfield Beach! When I am looking to just chill out and find my inner peace, this is the place that I go to the majority of the time! Although it is very lively, it is also quite charming. On the days that I want to catch a nice breeze and feel the fresh air against my face I walk along the pier. While doing so I always notice an super fab restaurant called, Cafe Med. Although I never stopped in, I was always intrigued and to be honest dying to actually try it out. So when my girl, Local Mom Scoop, invited me to test their menu I didn’t hesitate to say yes! Thanks girl! You so rock!!!!
When writing my foodie post I usually talk about how I felt when I arrived, the atmosphere the great company. Yep! It was all great! However, since I have been waiting so long to try to place I just want to dig in!!!
Now let’s get started!
We began our meal with a delicious handcrafted cocktail made personally by Mixologist, Antonio Anobile. This thirst quenching Flower Garden Martini is composed of Hendricks Gin, Lime, Cucumber, St. Germain, Simple syrup w/Bitters. To be honest I don’t drink that often, but when I do, Hendricks is so my thing! #Delish!
Then came the Mezze Maniche al Sapore del Mediterraneo, which is on the I need it in my life again list! It is made up of Short Tube Pasta with Shrimp, Bay Scallops, Pea Pods, Fresh Pomodoro, Basil. #ToDieFor!
The Gamberi e Cappesante con Funghi Trifolati was hands down one of my fav’s of the night! The Jumbo Shrimp, Sea Scallops, Lemon, Wild Mushrooms, Garlic, Risotto melted in my mouth after each tasty bite! I am totally hooked!
OK guys…I hope you are not full yet, because we still have a ways to go!!!! After the Gamberi was served we moved right into the Chilean Sea Bass. I loved this dish because it was cooked to perfection. The Seared Chilean Sea Bass, Mussels, Clams, Lemon Sauce Mashed Potatoes & Spinach is simply amazing!!
OK! So OMG!!! The Farrotto al Tartufo totally stole the show! I loved everything about this dish! The Farro “Risotto Style”, Black Truffles, Porcini Mushroom, Sun Dried Tomatoes, Parmigiano is everything and more!!!! #FavOfTheNight!
Last but not least we were served the Cowboy Ribeye Steak! This dish is a meat lovers dream! The grilled 24 oz. Grass Fed USDA Sterling Bone-in Ribeye, Baked Potato and Brssel Sprouts were magical! Although I don’t do much meat I #LovedIt!
Thank you so much Local Mom Scoop and Cafe Med for hosting this fabulous foodie get together! It was lovely!
