This quick post is for people within an easy drive to the capital of God's Country - Tallahassee, Florida. I have to share this alert to cool people, foodies and people who will not settle. February 14, 2019 - Valentines Day - I took the love of my life to eat at a great little restaurant that we were impressed with some months ago. And all I can say, beyond any shadow of any doubt - If you want a great, romantic meal then put this small boutique restaurant that serves passionately prepared food and great wine, with incredible service, on your bucket list. Even the name is cool - LUCILLA, a simple bistro with a simple concept - Serve amazing food with great service.
Just to get your mouth prepared here was our menu:
Bread - Incredible bread hot and tasty.
Calamari - Like I have never tasted with a sauce that only a well educated culinary artist could prepare.
Wedge Salad - So big my bride ordered it for her main dish. She is still talking about it. Most restaurants do not know how to make a really good wedge salad, but these guys are pros.
Fried Oysters - I am not an oyster fan, but, Susie is. Her take - Perfezionare!!! These perfect oysters were served with roasted tomatoes & a killer sauce.
Shrimp & Grits - OMG - I have had shrimp & grits from North Carolina to South Florida and they all fall short compared to the delicately fried shrimp and Low Country Grits in Lucilla's heavenly dish.
Wine - It doesn't get any better than a nice French Bordeaux. We took the small amount remaining home and finished it. If that's not to your liking, they have a nice sampling of other great wines to choose from.
And the prices for this great little culinary experience are not too bad, especially when you are trying to impress the one you love or just having a special meal with family and friends
So, don't ponder - Call, make a reservation and enjoy a meal to die for at this very cool little place serving some of the best food you will ever have.
