For this edible experience, we are writing about a restaurant in Rianna's hometown. Nestled in the heart of Fayetteville, NY is Pascale Wine Bar & Restaurant.
The atmosphere has a hip vibe and often on weekends features a band in the bar area to listen to local musicians while grabbing a drink with friends or while waiting for your table in the dining room. The exposed brick and eclectic artwork bring a fresh feel to diners as they await the unique meal options for the evening.
We started off our experience with three appetizers, truffle fries, Moroccan meatballs in a tomato sauce, and Escargot. All of these were delectable and are sure to get your meal started off right!
For the salad course, we selected the Finger Lakes Farmer Salad featuring iceberg lettuce, goat cheese, candied walnuts, fennel, apples, and a homemade cider vinaigrette dressing. While ingredients were very fresh, it didn't strike us as a must-have for our next visit.
For entrees we ordered a few dishes we have yet to experience anywhere. First off was the Autumn Ravioli with candied pecans, pearl onions, and finished in a brown butter sauce. A great choice for a cold fall night!
Next we tried the Wild Game Plate which included rabbit sausage, antelope steaks, and a whole quail over a nice polenta mash. The flavors in this plate were great compliments to each other and offered diners the chance to try three meats not often featured on most menus at all, especially with all three on one plate. A great value and an enhancement to our palates!
We also sampled from an order of Penne Vodka which was filled with cheesy goodness and was a hit for anyone who loves a classic vodka sauce.
As if we hadn't eaten enough, we went for the dessert round. Below you can see a signature Caribbean Cappuccino with a nice hint of rum and topped with chocolate sauce. Yum!
We also had the lemon pound cake with raspberry sorbet, which was light and delectable and a slice of the apple pie. We usually stray from apple pie since we like to make it fresh ourselves, however, this may have rivaled Rianna's pie-making skills!
Service was excellent, food was great and we will definitely be heading back to Pascale when we are in the area!
