Casa Tua

LogoWe had dinner last night at Casa Tua.  What a delight.  Housed in an old house.  Each room is intimate with lots of light and a wonderful outdoor garden.  It was quite the art scene last night. 

The food is really delicious.  The menu changes daily.  The chef highlights his picks of the evening in red.  I am amazed that the menu changes daily and still tastes this good.

I started with a simple mache salad with a sherry vinaigrette, shaved aged Gouda, toasted pine nuts and thinly sliced apples.  It was crisp and flavorful.  My friend had risotto with shaved truffles.  Wow.  The risotto was perfect.  Rich, al dente and the truffles took you over the top.  I didn’t really know the other people at the table so I didn’t reach over to taste but it all looked delicious.  Looking at everyone’s plates that were licked clean said something. 

There is also a nice basket of bread full of onion and regular focaccia and really good bread sticks. 

For dinner, each entree looked delicious but I split the whole branzini roasted in salt with someone else.  They served this with roasted vegetables.  All good.  Plenty of olive oil but the flavors of the food really came out.

If and when I come back to Miami Beach, I might make reservations at Casa Tua for every night.
