After a matinee performance of "Sister Act" at the Saenger Theatre yesterday, a group of us went to Domenica Restaurant, located in The Roosevelt Hotel. Our meal was fantastic!

To start, we ordered 2 small plates: the bruschetta with goat cheese & roasted beets and the roasted pork with pepper jelly.

We also ordered for the table the wood-fired eggplant with olive oil, vegetables, and tahini. The perfectly roasted eggplant is topped with braised leeks, roasted carrots, dollops of tahini, and  fresh basil. It is served with toasted pieces of pastry chef Lisa White's delicious bread. It was divine!

For our entree, we ordered 2 pizzas:

The Calabrese - tomato, spicy salami, mozzarella, capers, and olives.

And the Roasted Carrot - with goat cheese, red onion, shaved brussel sprouts, beets and hazelnuts. What a wonderful burst of flavors and textures! I can't wait to get another one of these.

All pizzas and most wines by the glass are half price at Domenica between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m., 7 days a week!  It's one of the best Happy Hours in town.

*Sorry for the poor picture quality. My group was starving and I had to move fast.

  1. I certainly don't blame your party for wanting to move fast for this food!
