Tinto? I Find it Rather Pale…

Last Friday May 16th, I had the pride and pleasure of watching my son Marc graduate from Arcadia University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. The grounds were decorated beautifully, but the ceremony had to transferred inside to the gymnasium because of the pouring rain. I’d say they dressed the gym up real nice.

Is that a killer smile, or what?  As the proud Mom, I planned to take Marc out for a fabulous lunch after the ceremonies, and decided on Tinto, Jose Garces restaurant in Philly.  I had visited his other restaurant, Amada, and had such a great experience that I was eager to try Tinto.

You know how when you were a little kid your mom told you, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything it all?” Well, that’s as much as I am going to say about Tinto. Here is what we ate:

Queso Mixto

Chorizo, Lomo and Jamon Serrano

Spiced Olives

Ensalada with mixed greens, avocado, asaparagus and roasted cherry tomato vinagrette

Revuelto: soft set scrambled eggs with wild mushroom and romesco toast

Chicken and roast grape pinchos

Halibut a la plancha with a parsley pesto

Grilled asparagus with lemon aioli

Pincho de Cordero: Bacon wrapped lamb skewers

Mixto Bocadillo (sandwich with mixed meats and cheese

Goat Cheese Mousse with pomegranate jelly and blackberries with almond lace cookie

    Like Chef Tom Colicchio would say,
    “Great presentation, but nothing between the book covers!”
