Adriatic Restaurant does Restaurant Week right

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. 

Butternut Squash Ravioli. They had me at brown butter.

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.
