Spectacular Seafood Dinner at Falls Landing

We stopped for a quick dinner the other night at the popular Falls Landing Seafood Restaurant in the quaint town of Brevard, North Carolina…

Falls Landing Seafood Restaurant, Brevard, NC

We quickly found out why the Falls Landing Seafood Eatery has been so popular with locals for over 20 years. My sweetheart ordered the fresh North Carolina Trout entrée. It was pan-sauteed with lemon butter and Kentucky bourbon and topped with candied pecans. She loved every bite…

Fresh Trout at Falls Landing Restaurant, Brevard, NC

I almost never order Salmon when we go out for dinner, but knowing we were in a seafood restaurant with a great reputation I thought I’d try something different. I chose the fresh Atlantic Salmon. It was pan-seared and topped with a tarragon caper cream sauce. What a terrific surprise. It was fantastic…

Salmonat Falls Landing Restaurant, Brevard, NC

When you visit Brevard, don’t miss this gem of a restaurant conveniently located downtown at 18 East Main Street near the shops and art galleries. Make a reservation at Falls Landing by calling (828) 884-2835.

Dinner at Renzo’s Ristorante in Hendersonville

We were invited recently to a soft opening at the new Renzo’s restaurant in Hendersonville, North Carolina. (The planned public opening is March 25th, so call now for reservations!)

Awning and Front Door at Renzos Restaurant, Hendersonville, NC

When I got the call inviting us to the soft opening, they said I could bring others so I asked two friends to join us. I’m glad I did, because we all had a wonderful time.

Renzo Maietto, Owner of Renzo's Ristorante, Hendersonville, NC

Maietto Renzo is originally from Italy, but he also spent 30 years designing and building beautiful homes in Florida before deciding to move to Hendersonville to open an Italian-Mediterranean restaurant in the former Mrs. G and Me’s location. The new Renzo’s offers delicious multi-course dinners in a sweet atmosphere…

Inside Renzo's Restaurant, Hendersonville, NC

Each couple started with an appetizer to share. My sweetheart and I had Insulata Caprese – Mozzarella Di Bufala, Roma tomatoes, and fresh basil with olive oil. It was perfect…

Renzo's Insalata Caprese Appetizer

Our friends had Beef Carpaccio – thin slices of beef tenderloin with shaved Parmesan cheese and arugula, and garnished with lemon. Great presentation and delicious…

Renzo's Beef Carpaccio Appetizer

For our first course, my sweetheart and I shared homemade Lasagna Della Donna, with meatballs, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. The noodles were homemade, super thin, and out of this world. I hope my grandmother doesn’t read my blog (God rest her soul) because these noodles were as good as hers…

Renzo's Lasagna Della Nonna

We made it easy on our server by ordering the same entrees for each couple to share.  Grilled Shrimp drizzled balsamic vinaigrette, with summer squash and roasted potatoes…

Renzo's Grilled Shrimp, Squash and Roasted Potatoes

…And Veal Saltimbocca with Prosciutto and sage, roasted potatoes, and spinach with golden raisins and pine nuts. It was fantastic…

Renzo's Veal Saltamboca

And finally, each couple shared a dessert. We had homemade Fresh Strawberry Ice, which had a super smooth and sweet ice cream like texture…

Renzo's Homemade Strawberry Ice Dessert

And a warm slice of fresh, rich (and deliciously sweet) Almond Cake…

Renzo's Almond Cake Dessert

(Each night since our dinner at Renzo’s I’ve been tempted to hop in the car and run down to Renzo’s for another slice of that Almond Cake!)

The staff at Renzo’s is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The combination of their spectacular food and great service will easily make Renzo’s one of the best restaurants in Hendersonville, North Carolina. (Possibly the best!) Renzo’s is located at 502 North Main Street, Hendersonville, North Carolina. For reservations (recommended) call 828-551-7766.
