A Weeknight at Bergamot

In August my big sister decided that BF and I needed to go to Restaurant Week with her, she didn’t care where we went as long as it offered a restaurant week menu and affordable wines.  I searched the restaurant week website and twitter looking for recommendations.  I found Bergamot.  I’ve heard lots of wonderful things about them, both RW and regular menu meals.  So we went – a table was acquired, wine was ordered, and delicious eating ensued.

Marinated Tomatoes and Peaches
Stinging Nettle Gnocchi – Roasted Cherry Tomato, Pattypan Squash, Shimeji Mushroom
Herb-Crusted Picnic Pork Shoulder – Braised Escarole, Shiitake Mushroom, Red Onion, Macerated Tomato Fondue
Cobbler – Oatmeal Tuile, Honeyed Stone fruit, Goat Cheese
Carrot Cake –Rum-Soaked Raisins, Cream Cheese Frosting, Crispy Carrot

Our meal at Bergamot was lovely – all fresh and local ingredients presented beautifully.  The heirloom tomato salad was perfectly flavored and well composed, seriously those peaches were pretty.  I loved my meal – the gnocchi was just right, chewy and pillowy, though it could have been a little less salty.  And BF’s pork was surprisingly moist and delicious to all of our surprise.  Also – that cream on the cobbler plate, it’s whipped goat cheese.  Swoon.

So when March 18-23, 25-30 comes around and you are looking for somewhere to visit for Restaurant Week go try Bergamot.  It’s worth your time. 🙂

  1. My sister and I just went to Bergamot – it was awesome! Glad to hear they are just at good for RW. (Nice to meet you yesterday, by the way!)

  2. I love Bergamot! I've had the carrot cake too – it's pretty awesome. I'm not surprised to hear a glowing review for RW, but even on regular nights, their food is spectacular 🙂
