Me and the hubby are finally going on our honeymoon and my mother and father in law decided to take us to Wurst. Wurst is located where Wildwood used to be. It`s a really nice location and I have to say I love the signage! There are two sections to Wurst the beer hall which is downstairs, and the upstairs a nicer dining experience if you prefer. We opted for the beer hall.

We got the Bavarian wings to share between the four us and it is the damn best thing I ever ate wing wise. It breaded with pretzel on the outside, boneless and stuffed with a sausage. That`s right, a sausage. It`s served with this mustard on the side and it was a meal in itself. Seriously finger licking good.

I wasn`t super hungry so I choose for my main the half dozen oyster from the Cold Bar. It was a mix of east and west coast oysters and I just love oysters. It came with three different sauces, one that was garlic and mayo combo and a cocktail one, and one I couldn`t quite figure out what it was. It tasted like the ocean and was perfect!

Hubby had a Pile Of Bratwurst and it was HUGE serving. It came with creamed potatoes, braised red cabbage and a mustard gravy. Now I liked the mustard that came with the wings, but the mustard gravy that came with the bratwurst had the weirdest taste to me. Surprisingly, the braised red cabbage was delicious and this girl hates cabbage. It was meaty goodness that it hearty and filling.

My mother in law had the Apple and Beet salad. I didn`t sample any of it as I claimed it was too healthy for me. Sorry for the blurriness of this picture. The presentation was really nice though.

Father in law had the schnitzel and it was mouthwatering. I am not one for veal but this was really good and it came with a berry sauce that really made it something else. I didn`t get a picture of this one as father in law pretty much wolfed it down before I had the chance.

Since it was a beer hall, hubby got a four beer sampler so he can test taste different ones. I am not one for beer unfortunately.

All in all, I really liked Wurst, it was a great place to eat and hang out. The have a wall where people can rent, so that they can keep their beer stein there. I like the concept of the place, as most places have the same boring pub food fare, the food here is alot more creative.

San Remo

With the husband out of town one night, me and the sisters decided to have a girls night out, and decided since we always go for sushi, we should go somewhere else. Then I remember $10 pasta night at San Remo. So we made our way on over. My sister asked if it was better then Chianti's pasta night and I said "Hell Yeah!" The only thing about this place, it's for people who want to take time eating. The service is slow, since they want you to enjoy your meal. So be prepared to be there for at least a couple of hours!

I love complementary bread and butter at Italian placed. I especially love their sun dried tomato butter. The bread was crusty on the outside and soft and yummy on the inside. Both my sisters agree that it was the best butter and bread combo that they have ever tasted.

For an appetizer we ordered the San Remo Meatballs. OH MY GOSH! The meatballs were amazing. Cooked all the way through and so moist! The sauce was so good that we used some of the extra bread to sop it up. I want more of these meatballs.

I ordered the Chicken Parmesan. The chicken was cooked perfectly and the mozzarella cheese melted all over the chicken and pasta, so every bite you got a whole lot of flavor. I would definitely get this guy again when I come.

My sister Diana got the Seafood Linguini. Now I had this the first time I visted here with the husband so I know this is also one of my favorites. The only thing about it I didn't like, was they only give you on shrimp! I know it's $10 pasta night, but maybe a few more shrimps would make customers more happy.

Mary had the Steak and Mushrooms Parpadelle. YUM! I sampled some of hers and it was delicious! The garlic parmesan sauce the had on the pasta made me want to steal her food. You get to pick how well done you want the steak, she likes it a little bit more rare then I do.

Of course we had to try their Tiramisu. I love Tiramisu. There's just something so comforting and yummy about it. I want know that I am staring at this picture as I am writing this. They put raspberry coulis on the bottom and topped with a strawberry on top. Me and mys sisters devoured this in twenty seconds. Seriously, we did.

All in all, San Remo is a great place to come eat when you have all the time in the world. Our server was super nice without being annoying to over attentive. For three people on pasta night the bill was $60.
