|The Tolani Dining Room|
2001 Barolo tasting. I knew the food would be good, but the last thing I expected was to be floored from the start. The Butternut Squash soup was a pure dive into a sea of indulgence. It’s easiest to say that this soup managed to hit every pleasure meter of taste and smell impossible. It’s one of those dishes that walks the line of sweet and savory and somehow lands perfectly between the two. It was sweet, smoky, creamy and utterly seductive. The funniest part is that since I didn’t expect to be writing about food on this visit, I don’t have a photo.

If you haven’t already experienced Tolani, now’s the time to do so. I honestly can’t imagine how they can top my last two experiences, yet I have a feeling they’re up to the challenge.
