Friday evening, we went to see Wicked at the Bushnell in Hartford, CT. Arriving later than we would have like (having jobs and all), we ate near the Bushnell at the Peppercorn's Grill within easy walking distance. And, they had 20% off entrees with Bushnell tickets...which also made us assume they would know to get us fed and out in time for the show. A correct assumption.
P had a Red Sangria to start which he gave a 3 1/2 stars. I had a Prosecco, but having not bothered to find out what kind, I won't bother to rate, but will say it was, as always, a good summer drink. I just love drinks with bubbles, it feels like I'm celebrating everyday life!!
For an appetizer, we had antipasto del giorno (antipasto of the day). We only gave it a 3 stars. The meats were delicious, the red peppers were very good, but there was nothing spectacular about it, unless you count the giant pile of marinated jalapeno peppers which caught me off guard as I didn't expect a pile of hot peppers that big. And not even P could finish and he LOVES hot peppers.
P had the Gnocchi del Giorno which he gave 3 1/2 stars.
I had the Housemade Artichoke filled Ravioli, which was awesome: butter, cheese, white truffle...ooh-la-la!! 4 stars.
No dessert or coffee. We had to get to the show!!
By the Way, the show was awesome! A few stretches in the plot line that just don't jive with the Wizard of Oz story...but entertaining, fun, and well done! Worth going to see!!
