OK, restaurant reviewer I am not. I'm much too finicky an eater to be a good restaurant reviewer. That said, I do love good food, and I am dazzled by the restaurant choices here in Salem. Each time Restaurant Week comes along, I find myself struggling to decide where to eat - what to eat. We are truly blessed in the culinary department here in Salem.
I had the chance to eat at Adriatic Restaurant for Restaurant Week, and (oh, my gosh) it was delicious. It was so good, I ate one of my ravioli before I realized I wanted to take a picture for the blog.

Adriatic is offering Three Courses for $25, and they are offering two courses for $15 at lunch, so don't feel you have to wait until dinner time to spoil your palate.
For the first course, I had the Butternut Squash Ravioli and my colleague had the Stuffed Portabella Mushroom. Our plates were cleaned.
For the second course, I had the Spaghetti Nero de Seppia and my colleague had the Braised Lamb Shanks. There was an abundance of calories, and it was worth every bite.

Dessert was unbelievable - the Tiramisu was divine, and we followed it with Cappuccino.
Restaurant Week continues on Sunday, and there are more than twenty restaurants participating with fantastic two and three-course menus. This is a tremendous opportunity to check out some of Salem's new restaurants or revisit a favorite spot.
