I was thrilled to find out that one of my favorite restaurants, Pesce Fresco in Centennial has reopened for lunch. So one of my top notch Realtor friends, Mary McCollough, Keller Williams DTC, and I made plans to go. The new menu did not disappoint, with some very interesting items.
Catching my eye were:
Seafood Relleno: Handmade rellano stuffed with shrimp, lobster, crab, Nanchego and Asadero cheese, over a savory posole, with calavasitas, topped with a fried egg and sharp cheddar.
Now, doesn’t that sound interesting. If I hadn’t had a cheeseburger for lunch yesterday, I would have gone for it.
The appetizer that caught my eye was :
Gorganzola Cheesecake: The house specialty! A savory warm cheesecake topped with caramelized balsamic onions and served with crispy golden mushrooms.
I’ve got to go back for both of those!
Under sandwiches I found:
Colorado Lamb Meatball: Grilled tender slow cooked lamb meatballs with our special pomodoro sauce served on a hoagie roll and topped with melted house made mozzarella.
Again, this one will call for a 3rd visit.
Trying to culinarily behave, I chose a salad:
Sauteed Scallops and Bacon Salad: Sauteed sea scallops tossed with mixed greens, green apples, red onions, applewood smoked bacon and a sweet apple cider vinaigrette.
YUM – The scallops were cooked perfectly with that melt in your mouth sweet scallop flavor and the vinaigrette had just enough flavor without overwhelming. I’d recommend.
Mary chose the Shaved Italian Beef: Shaved grilled marinated tri-tip with sauteed peppers, fresh herbs, balsamic onions, smoked provolone on a Hoagie roll.
It looked sinfully delicious, she concurred that it indeed was!
Love the atmosphere here, Classy and relaxed – a great place for a business lunch!
