Eating out

My friend Claudio suggested to grab lunch at this lunch spot called Il Corvo. It’s right behind the market down the steps.

He said he was sharing space with the gelateria Procopio – which I found a bit mediocre the couple of times I ate gelato there.

Well, il Corvo definitely makes it a worthy spot now. They make pasta by hand every morning and serve a few different dishes every day.

The quality was very good and the price is good as well. It’s a 10-15 dollar lunch depending on whether you get some wine, an appetizer, etc. great lunch portion.

I will definitely go back. It’s only a few minutes from our office and it has a nice characteristic vibe. Busy but now crowded.

Last night we stopped by Trellis (@heathman hotel in Kirkland) for desserts and a drink.

They have a great outside seating and although we live very close we actually had never been before.

We ended ordering a dessert (sage honey flan), fries and wine.

The flan had a great texture, but I really could not taste the sage and overall thought it was a bit on the blend side.

Fries were great.

They were out of couple of dessert wines so we opted for a Malbec.

Overall it was too little for a full review. The menu looked interesting, but I’ll have to go back to truly have an idea of how good it is. I am hoping it’s a bit better than the first impression I had from the dessert.
