Cafe Fiore - Ventura, CA

Scott and I just love this place! The night before I left to go to Las Vegas he took me for a night out on the town for a few drinks and a quick bite. I love how they bring you different types of bread to dip with their house marinara. Carbalicious.

Basil Martini. Sure why not? It tasted healthy. 

Now we are getting to the good stuff... Starting on the left are Crab Cakes with a very crunchy slaw, it was the perfect blend of savory and sweet! Pancetta wrapped Shrimp are in the middle, on a bed of polenta. Heaven! On the right are Goat Cheese Fritters that were pretty forgettable served with red peppers. 

Scott had an arugula salad that was covering a nice piece of Chicken Parmesan. It was a healthier option that the traditional dish and it had a freshness that couldn't be matched. He ate every bite.

Right when you thought my burrata obsession was over it jumped right back into place! I am also cuckoo for arugula now too. What is wrong with me? Did I get stung by an Italian bee? This craving for all things Italian have taken over! I never really liked the cuisine before, I just thought of it all as sauce and noodles. Anyhow, my salad was also filled with beets, pistachios and drizzled with a wonderful aged balsalmic. Love...
