"My sister and I went to Trezo Mare for lunch/brunch after church today.
The place itself is very impressive. Nice booths. Very open feel. We walked by the kitchen going to our table. My sister order the fusilli shrimp Diablo with a vodka cream sauce. It was very good, not too spicy. I was in the mood for breakfast today so I order the Basic Breakfast. There's a choice between Italian sausage, bacon, Canadian bacon...or praline bacon. Part of me was screaming SALCICCIA! But the other part of me chose the regular bacon. Then, I asked our server Alisa if my breakfast came with toast or a biscuit. She said she could bring toast. Then the other side of me that was screaming SALCICCIA came back and ordered, a la carte, the cheddar biscuit with gravy. Not that crazy about biscuits and gravy. But....what is in the gravy? SALCICCIA! Then, Alisa, was kind enough to bring a slice of the praline bacon, AKA pig candy, for us to try. It was sweet but not cloyingly. And it was sprinkled with nuts. She also let us try the cinnamon rolls. I enjoyed my breakfast. Crisp bacon, breakfast potatoes...it also came with a little of the Trezo Mare hot sauce. Not too hot with a smoky flavor. For dessert, my sister had the flourless chocolate cake. Chocolate lovers, this is your new go to dessert. Light, creamy but rich. Almost a cross between a mousse and cheesecake. I chose the creme brulee. I thought it was just because I like creme brulee but I think it might have been subliminally induced by the recent posts about it. This one's good. The custard was creamy. And the caramel was perfectly crisp. There was a little fruit chutney on top. Erin, event coordinator, was kind enough to show us around. They have an excellent wine room that would be perfect for events. There's also the lounge area. It has a section that can be roped off for a smaller group gathering. And then, there's the patio. It was too hot today but they have a great space for outdoor dining or, again, a special event. Another plus is the gluten free options. Erin told me the owner, Mike Lee, worked with Chef Padilla on a menu with gluten free options. Several members of Mike's family eat gluten free.
Trezo mare è molto buono!"

About Carlton Logan:
Carlton never had a chance. He was destined for a career in the food industry. As a kid, he watched his father grilling and smoking on the weekends. In the summer, he sometimes spent his days at his godparents’ bakery. He greeted customers and watched his godparents decorating cakes and glazing donuts. In his teens, the baking bug bit him. And he began creating desserts for birthdays and special events. The orders for cookies, cupcakes, and cakes started coming in. This evolved into teaching cooking classes at a retail store and chef at a special events facility. After a brief stint in the corporate world, he recently returned to the kitchen for his food blog. He also joins his dinner group once a month to enjoy local restaurants. He enjoys all cuisines especially Asian and Italian and is a certified chocoholic.
Special thanks for the awesome comments on Carlton's review! 😊
