A few months ago, I told you about L'Andana's new Piattini menu. I really loved their small plates concept and the food was inexpensive and delicious. L'Andana has now expanded this idea, creating a new Enoteca Menu, an expanded list of small plates and inexpensive dishes in their bar and lounge. If you are looking for a good value when dining out, then you should check out this new menu.
The menu begins with some Bocconcini ("small mouthfuls" in Italian), which include one of my favorites, the Lemon & Mozzarella Arancini ($4). Then there are the Piatti Primi, seven small appetizers, priced $7-$10. Try the Crisp Sweetbreads Milanese or the Wood-Grilled Quail with Prosciutto, Marsala and Parmesan Polenta. The Piatti Secondi are more like small entrees, priced $12-$16. You could get Wood-grilled Sliders with smoked bacon, Fontina cheese and rosemary fries or a 7 oz. Wood-Grilled Sirloin with a salt-baked potato and grilled Romaine with Gorgonzola. Or try the Wood-Grilled Swordfish or Loch Duart Salmon.
They still have their Pizzas on the new menu: a Margherita, Sopressata and a Quattro Funghi. Plus, there are three desserts, including Chocolate Crema, Sorbetto/Gelato and Mixed Berries (all $3 each).
We all want value when dining out, especially in these tougher economic times, so it is well worth visting L'Andana and checking out the new Enoteca menu. Their food is excellent, they have some interesting cocktails, and good wines. So what are you waiting for?
