Pesce Fresco Restaurant

Friday for lunch, I met friends Lee and Mary at Pesce Fresco Restaurant.   Pesce Fresco is a great little place tucked away behind Safeway just north of the intersection of Arapahoe Road and Quebec Streets in Centennial.   I love this restaurant, the food and the atmosphere.

We decided to share an appetizer and chose Gorgonzola Cheesecake.  The House Speciality.  Oh my goodness.  This is a fabulous and interesting creation.  A savory warm cheesecake topped with caramelized balsamic onions and served with crispy golden mushrooms.  I recommend this.

And one order was just enough for a big spoonfull for all three of us.

025Since I was preparing pasta for dinner Friday, I decided to go the healthier route so ordered my stand by; Sauteed Scallops and Bacon Salad.  Sauteed sea scallops tossed with mixed greens, green apples, red onions, applewood smoked bacon and a sweet apple cider vinaigrette.  This is delicious and fresh.

Both Lee and Mary ordered the Shaved Italian Beef Sandwich.  This is shaved grilled marinated tri-tip with sauteed peppers, fresh herbs, balsamic onions, smoked provolone served on a Hoagie roll.  It looked wonderful and they both said it was great.  It’s a large sandwich and each of them ended up taking half  of it home.

I am still looking forward to ordering the house specialty Seafood Relleno.  Handmade relleno stuffed with shrimp, lobster, crab, Manchego and Asadero cheese, over a savory posole with calavasitos, topped with a fried egg and sharp cheddar.  One..of..these…..days.   One of these “I’m feeling skinny-ish days”  :-)

On this day..
