Lauren and I recently had a lovely dinner at an adorable, new-ish restaurant in Town Brookhaven called Baci (owned by the Cafe at Pharr folks). Baci is a cute + cozy eatery that was packed with curious locals the night we visited. It immediately struck us as the kinda of place where you could become a regular and the friendly staff would remember your name/ favorite menu items.
We sat down and cracked open a bottle of red, which we brought with us since Baci didn’t have its liquor license yet. CODE RED(wine) is what LK called it! And, we looked over the menu as we grilled the server about her favorite items and house specialties.
We started off our meal with Baci’s Caprese Salad: tomatoes, mozzarella, basil + creamy balsamic vinegar. It was beautifully plated, and it absolutely hit the spot.
We quickly moved onto our entrees. We shared the Seared Scallops: scallops + house risotto (pesto risotto the evening we dined)…
…and the Chilean Sea Bass: hong-kong style sea bass with white rice. Both entrees were delicious, but in my opinion the sea bass was totally the way to go.
As a side, we couldn’t help ourselves when we spotted the Lobster Mac n’ Cheese on the menu. It was incredibly decadent - a very welcomed splurge!
Check us out with our divine spread…
We weren’t actually hungry for dessert, but as soon as the server told us that the Gelato of the Week was salted caramel, the deal was SEALED! Two scoops please – we’re not sharing! It blew my mind. I looooove salted caramel, but it has to be prepared JUST right or you can’t quite taste the saltiness or it’s terribly overpowering. This gelato was fan-freaking-tastic!
We very much enjoyed our evening at Baci, and we recommend you try it before a movie at Cinebistro or for a quiet dinner date. We know that you will love it as much as we do! LK + I give Baci two thumbs up AND two big hugs. Such an adorable spot!
