Spasso Italian Grill- Media, PA

In a meal that was nothing short of fabulous, Spasso in Media, PA, showed once again why they are one of my go-to restaurants (there is a another location in Old City if you're not in the burbs!).

It was two days before my birthday and all I wanted was the grilled calamari. How good can calamari be, right? And not fried? TRUST ME. Again, I tell you, trust me! You won't even know you are eating squid. It's wonderfully charred, tender like a steak, and seasoned without being too flavored. I was over-the-moon when the waiter announced there was a grilled/fried calamari antipasto special being offered. SOLD! This, right here, is my #1 ideal meal in all of the world. A mix of everything I love!

The broth of the mussels was so divine that I drank it right from the spoon. A must-dunk for any bread you may have leftover from the start of the meal. And if there's none left? Ask for more; the server will be happy to bring you another basket.

I didn't need this pasta dish because I was already more than full from everything else, but I love pappardelle and combined with the shitake mushrooms and sundried tomatoes, it was a home run for me.

Spasso is consistenly impressive with a good price point and attentive service in a beatiful location on State Street in Media. Go go go!!!
