Pesce Fresco, Greenwood Village


Update as of June, 2014.  Pesce Fresco Restaurant is now out of business and under new ownership.  The restaurant is now The Creek Seafood Grill.

As promised, I made a 2nd lunch trip to Pesce Fresco in Greenwood Village.  Again, let me tell you that I LOVE that restaurant.  The atmosphere is elegant and cozy, the wait staff accomplished and attentive and the food excellently crafted.

Bob and I made the anticipated lunch date, studied the menu, and then odered nothing we had pre-planned!  HA   Doesn’t matter, I’m convinced everything is good.

Bob ordered the Ricotta Gnocchi.

Artichokes, asparagus, ricotta gnocchi in a “loaded with flavor” broth which we think was lemon based with basil and a distinct garlic feel.  YUM

I ordered the Colorado Lamb Meatball Sandwich.  I don’t even know where to begin on what was the best part about that open-faced sandwich.  The menu describes the bread as a “hoagie”.  I’ve never had that good a “hoagie”.  The bread was fab.  Pomodora Sauce:  some sort of Aoili?  What ever it was, it was delicious.  I’m pretty picky about my lamb; those meatballs were savory.  Topped with melted mozarella cheese and sweet cherry tomatoes, a side of Caprese salad, and pickled olives, peppers and carrot.

My plate was so clean, I hope the dishwasher knew it had been used.

Love Pesce Fresco.  Make plans and go.

On this day..

    I am fantasizing about the lamb meatballs and caprese and now know what I’m picking up at the grocery today. YUMMY!

    It was really really good. I’ve searched for a Pomodora Sauce and found a couple. They also had aioli as a dressing on the bread. Not sure I could duplicate it exactly, but I’m sure gonna try! 😉
