Pasta Night At The Smoke Rise Village Inn

Pasta Night at the Smoke Rise Village Inn
Hey! Best Pasta Night Ever at the Smoke Rise Village Inn this past Sunday 9/20/09! The food, from the salad to the pasta fagiole to the pasta itself, was REALLY GOOD!

I'm not just saying that -- the flavors were fresh and bright and deep, not at all what you might expect of a pasta buffet.

By the way, you do not have to live in Smoke Rise to come to the Village Inn. It's open to everybody.

There were 4 pasta dishes as usual, and each one was delicious. There was farfalle with a mushroom pancetta cream sauce, cavatelli with broccoli and sausage, tortellini with vodka, and penne with a tomato eggplant sauce. All of the pasta was warm to hot and al dente, the vegetables were fresh and al dente, nothing was over salted, and I could have happily eaten myself sick.

I did not. Good for me. I was plenty full, though.

Washed down with the Smithwick's Ale (pronounced shmiddicks, I am told), it was an ideal Sunday night dinner with no work, no cleaning up and happy kids.

At 13 bucks per person and 1/2 price for kids under 10, it's a great deal, too.

The Inn has a new manager, Keith Tierney, whom we met and who seems very much on top of things, and we understand Chef George has some new sous chefs to help him produce the great food.

Look for the newsletter announcements or check the website for notice of the next Pasta Night (always on Sunday from 5 to 7:30 PM).

You will be happy you did.
