Barolo Grill’s “Anatra al Barolo (braised duckling)”

Location: Cherry Creek

Rating: 5.5 (out of 10)

Price:  $24

The Skinny: “Some people either love this dish or hate it” cautioned the waiter as I ordered their signature dish, the Braised Duckling.  Although I can’t say I hated it, I completely get the polarization.  The baby duck is braised in a red wine and kalamata olive liquid, giving the outside of the bird a deep purple hue and making it taste awfully bitter.  At half the price, it wouldn’t crack my must-eat list, let alone at $24.  Sure, I’ll give credit that the duck was fairly tender, but I just couldn’t get past the persistent jab of the outside flavor.

This is, however, not to downgrade the experience at the restaurant.  The service was outstanding.  Truly.  Some of the nicest staff I’ve met of all of the restaurants on this list.  And the food I had besides the duck was very, very good indeed.  I don’t know why in the hell they draw attention to this dish with the word “signature” – they’re better than this.

    Very good blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Kudos!

    Most computers can have enough for everyday use, typically USB.
    The gaming companies are a large and competitive one, and MSI is the brand that
    can verify that sentiment, particularly with the amount of growth and success they’ve submitted
    throughout the last year. You can geet an entertainment, desktop replacement, ultra-portable, gaming and
    budget notebooks.
