Bottega Louie

Sometimes pictures speak louder than words, and that is why this review has so many. Simple, clean, elegant, and all white everything describes the atmosphere of Bottega Louie.  As you walk in, you will see the bakery area with tarts, cupcakes, colorful macaroons, and other pastries. Boxes  tagged with the name Louie are all over the place. Next, you will see the bar on the left and the super clean open kitchen on the right. Walking towards the host table you see the rest of the dining area with plenty of seats, but one of the eye catchers is the pizza oven in the far back wall.IMG_00000310IMG_00000307  IMG_00000305IMG_00000288 IMG_00000267

The menu is standard American Italian. We ordered the meatball sliders with the popular fries, short ribs with lardon ragu, lamb rack chops with vegetables and red wine demi glaze. For dessert, I had a delicious peanut butter terrine, and a gang of other desserts. The food was good, but not out of this world. The short ribs would melt in your mouth; however, every dessert was on point even the macaroons despite the $2.50 price tag for the small cookie. The drink menu is very impressive; there is a wide variety of wine choices. I had a great berry lemonade topped with raspberries.

The bakery and sophisticated atmosphere were the high points. The service was better on my second visit. The biggest negative that I witnessed was some of the tables didn’t receive all their entrees at the same time. I can tell somebody there use to work at the Cheesecake Factory, because they have some of the same ideals when it comes to steps of service, and the bakery concept.
