Have you ever found that you stop exploring culinary options in your city? You find your favorite spots with mouthwatering dishes and forget to be adventurous. Since I am tip-toeing around that rut, I frequently remind myself to try new restaurants.
We recently dined at the Trattoria Stella on Colfax and I was pleasantly happy with my dinner. Mark my words, you put any form of beets on a menu and I am in. The beet thing I have grown into. I definitely remember hiding my beets in a full glass of milk at the babysitter to get my coveted rainbow ice cream. Yes, that makes no sense at all. Pink milk? Come on 6 year old Katey… I got my ice cream though. Win.
Back to Trattoria Stella, I had the Ravioli & Beets with goat cheese & ricotta ravioli, marsala cream sauce, beets, pine nuts, topped with baby greens. My plate was clean and it’s a fact I did the head-nod-of-approval-this-is-amazing while eating.
Give it a try and enjoy a cozy Italian evening.
