Biscottis

Hey Dolls,

It's that time of year again for office parties and Christmas socials and I attended one at Biscottis last Thursday! Biscottis is a quaint little restaurant nestled in the heart of Avondale of Jacksonville, FL.  They offer wonderful gourmet meals, great coffee, and some of the best cakes you'll ever eat!

I have eaten here before and I absolutely LOVE their food!  It's so fresh and flavorful!
For an appetizer,  I had the mozzarella bruschetta!  I have tried bruchetta from several different restaurants and this ranks up there with the bruschetta I had from French Pantry!  It was delicious!  The cheese is ooey and gooey deliciousness and the fresh tomatoes and pine nuts were heavenly!

For my entree I had the ancho honey-glazed salmon BLT with pasta salad!  Oh my goodness....this sandwich was THE BOMB! LOL!  I wanted to eat all of it in one sitting but I stopped myself because I knew I wanted to save room dessert!  The flavors of the salmon and pancetta meshed together very well along with the tomato remoulade and the pesto on the pasta salad was perfection!

Last, but certainly not least are the desserts!  Homemade daily by their pastry chef, Biscottis offer a wide variety of decadent cakes, pies, and tarts!  I had the German chocolate cake and it was so good!  My colleagues had the Oreo cream pie, and croissant bread pudding.  I sampled them both and will definitely be purchasing my own serving next time I visit Biscottis!

 I have absolutely no complaints what so ever when it comes to Biscottis!  It may very well be my new favorite place!  The New York Times Sunday Travel ranks Biscottis as one of the top 4 places to dine in Jacksonville and I couldn't agree more.

Talk to you soon!
