We were still savoring our first course when our next series of goodies arrived, and as Cythera and company presented the plates of our marinated grilled vegetables, ricotta gnocchi, and local kale salad, our eyes were on stems. The vegetable plate consisted of thick, meaty slices of grilled eggplant, zucchini, and yellow squash, alongside warm quinoa salad with wilted spinach, tomatoes, parmesan, and all drizzled with basil oil. I had never before had gnocchi (potato dumplings), and our ricotta gnocchi was one of the most glorious things I have ever tasted. My mouth somersaulted with delight over this particular dish that offered heaps of gnocchi, sun gold tomatoes, wild mushrooms, and local goat cheese, all swimming together in the most delicious sauce. As if those two were not enough to satisfy and excite our palates, believe it or not, the local kale salad was our favorite. It arrived as a magnificent mound, freshly tossed with pumpkin seeds, currants, manchego cheese, lemon, and olive oil. It was seemingly so simple and yet so absolutely divine.
While we did not want the evening, nor our grand feast to end, our parting gift came in the form of dessert. As die-hard ice-cream lovers, mama and I shared a serving of Belgian chocolate sorbet and mint chocolate ice cream, both made from scratch in the restaurant. We closed our eyes with every bite and could taste every single natural ingredient. This truly sent us over the moon and completed our heavenly evening at Posana Café.
Even though we only experienced dinner, it is also open for breakfast and lunch, and I imagine that ANY food made in this glorious restaurant is nothing short of fantastic. Mama and I left feeling filled with good, REAL, natural food, and absolutely satisfied in mind, body, and spirit. Thank you, Posana Café, for an unforgettable experience; we WILL see you again…the sooner, the better.
