For GNO (girls' night out) we ate at LAVO Italian Restaurant & Nightclub. I had always heard good things about this restaurant! Out of all the other restaurants that I had complimentary dinners at, LAVO gives the most generous servings and one free drink! I started off drinking a Sicilian Sun - Charbay Blood Orange Vodka, orange, and lemon juices. It was mixed well and it wasn't drenched in too much alcohol. From what I remember, they gave us, a party of 8: salad, pizza, spaghetti with peas (my favorite dish), cheese sticks, Crispy Zucchini, Crispy Fried Calamari (I could tell it was fresh), and Chicken Parmagiano! When our waiter found out one of the girls just turned 21, he brought a big slice of a chocolate cake! Some of us came starving and still couldn't finish everything! I love LAVO!
After driving pass by Herbs & Rye for many years I finally went in to see what all the hype was about this place. They serve classic cocktails that were popular during the Prohibition Era and before that time like the Gothic Age (unknown-1865) and Golden Age (1865-1900): Here's an example of of some of the drinks: I loved all the drinks they made, wasn't disappointed with any of them: Herbs & Rye also serves Italian food like flatbreads , pasta, and they're known for the steaks they cook, I'll try some next time! I only had the appetite to drink: I really enjoyed my time here especially the atmosphere of a " speakeasy feel". They get busy during the weekends so if you plan to dine in, make a reservation !
