Bill and I went to Pinstripes Friday night for a date night. Pinstripes is distinctive dining and entertainment venue that features a bistro with exceptional Italian/American cuisine and wine; bowling and bocce; a year-round outdoor patio and fire pit; and event space/party rooms accommodating 20-600 people. You can easily enjoy lunch or dinner, private parties, weekend live blues and jazz, wine dinners, mom & tot play dates, clubs and leagues and other exciting promotions. We were boring and just went for dinner. I was immediately impressed when we showed up 25 minutes early for our reservation and they were able to seat us right away. (We thought we’d get stuck in traffic getting there and there was no traffic!)


As we were trying to decide what to order, they brought out this phenomenal bread basket. I loved the bread strips, because I then didn’t fill up on bread.


I also ordered a Diet Coke and Captain Morgan. Or as the waiter called it “a skinny pirate”. I will admit that I laughed at that. When my drink came is when we realized that waiters here are a team. They are all watching to see if you need anything. There was no waiting for a refill, because they had them coming the whole time we were eating.


For appetizers, we order calamari and fried mozzarella. The first thing I noticed was that the mozzarella was fresh. To be honest, that completely floored me. You don’t often find that. The appetizers were super yummy.



For the main course, I got the Triple Filet Mignon (each little steak had a different topping), and Bill got the shrimp jambalaya. I had to laugh again when the waiter made sure Bill liked spicy food. Obviously, people order this without realizing that it’s got a kick to it. Bill said his food was excellent. My Filet Mignon literally melted in my mouth. Bill couldn’t even finish all his food — we had to bring some of it home!


Lastly, we ordered dessert. Well, Bill ordered dessert. After finishing my food, there was no room in my stomach for anything else. However, Bill loves cheesecake, so he left just enough room for that. I did sneak a bite and their cheesecake is some of the best cheesecake I have ever had. The strawberries they also used were fresh.

Not only will we go back to Pinstripes again, but Bill said he plans on bringing some of his clients there also. We were impressed with the service and the food. It was that good!
