Erin's Monday Restaurant Review: Tuscan Grill

4 out of 5 stars...

Continuing our tour of the new abode, my husband and I ventured over to Tuscan Grill a few Saturdays ago. We've been wanting to go to this place since before we moved to the beach, but just never did.

It was a good experience. The waiter was fantastic. So friendly and attentive, but kept his distance. So few servers in nice restaurants are able to achieve the balance. Usually you feel like they want to come home with you at the end of the night.

Anyway, the drinks were good, the bread was fantastic and the meals were solid. I got the 6 oz fillet mignon, medium rare. It was just right. And just the right size. I have no need to eat a steak the size of my head. Oh, and the sweet potato puree. So good. Like a little piece of Thanksgiving heaven in June. My husband got the special steak, covered in brie, applewood smoked bacon and a red wine reduction. It was pretty darned tasty as well. However, he has yet to find a place that will cook his steak to his liking. I got him to agree with me that the rarer the steak, the more flavor. However, he still insists on eating his medium well. Which is his prerogative. And if he orders it like that, they should serve it like that. Alas, it came out pink as can be. He ate it of course, because he's too nice to send anything back.

They have this fun outdoor area that says it's for wine tastings. We'll have to check that out some other time. Especially since I forgot to use the coupon I had this time around. Oops!

All in all it was, as the sign in the front says, 'a discrete dining experience.'
