Dining Out: Posto

A few weeks ago I read a review of new Davis Square spot, Posto, on one of my favorite blogs, the Economical Eater. That same day I made a dinner date with one of my favorite girls who lives in Inman Square. She doesn't have a car, so we try to meet at places near T stops. Posto seemed like a perfect suggestion.

Tonight we met at the restaurant at 6:30pm. Since the weather was so gorgeous Posto had their floor to ceiling windows open. I smiled with glee. I absolutely love that first week of spring when you can finally open the windows, restaurants included!

Once we walked inside we were greeted by a friendly host who had an adorable flirtation with my friend. All the tables in the windows were taken, so he walked us to a table for two right in front of the pizza oven. We had a great view of all the pizzas going in and out of the fiery oven.

A few moments after being seated our waiter came to greet us carrying a Post0 branded, glass bottle of water. I love when restaurants brand their presentation like this!

The waiter handed us menus and dove right into describing some of their specialty drinks. We decided to each start with a glass of the Sangria Noir. My dinner date said, "I already like the idea of this drink more just because it says Noir." Touche.

When the Sangria Noir arrived, we both frowned when we noticed it didn't have any fresh fruit in it or as a garnish on the rim of the glass. However, when we took our first sips, those frowns turned upside down! The sangria was fantastic! No fruit needed!

As we mulled over the menu, we snacked on these gravity defying breadsticks. I thought they were stale, but my dinner date loved them. In fact, when we finished our first batch she asked for more. She even grabbed another one from the bar on our way out the door!

To start we decided to share an appetizer that the waiter recommended, the lemon arancini. They arrived, four to a bowl, over piping hot tomato sauce. When you cut into the arancini ball you could smell the lemon. It was intoxicating. At the center of the arancini ball was house made mozzarella cheese. These were superb! I could have eaten ten more!

For dinner, my friend ordered the Maine crab tortellini. She said it was the right amount of seafood flavor. In fact, her direct quote was, "It's not too crabby." Ha! She liked the pea brodo served with the pasta and said she felt satisfied, but not too full, the way pasta dishes can sometimes leave you feeling.

I decided to order the Bianco pizza which was a symphony of cheeses, garlic, basil, lemon zest and baby arugula. I don't know what it is, but I love arugula on pizza. This particular pizza was outrageously delicious! The cheese was ooey gooey good, the arugula was fresh and each piece had the perfect amount of lemon and garlic. I stopped at half so I could eat the other half for lunch tomorrow!

Somewhere in the middle of our entrees we decided to order a second round, this time the strawberry margarita. Our waiter brought the cocktail shaker right to our table and poured the margaritas into martini glasses at the table. He told us when we ordered them that the drink tastes like strawberry lemonade and he was right! I could drink this cocktail every single night. It tasted like candy, which is exactly how I like my alcohol.

After boxing up my pizza, our waiter brought us the dessert menu. Though they had some great offerings: sorbet, tiramisu, chocolate torte and more, we weren't in the mood and passed.

As we walked out, I couldn't help but notice the fun bar set up and the countless bottles of wine decorating the wall behind the bar. Next time we will sit there!

I loved Posto! I was thrilled to see they open their windows in the nice weather, our waiter was excellent, the drinks were phenomenal and the food was terrific! I can't wait to go back and test our more menu items!

Additional great news, the manager stopped by our table to ask how we were enjoying our meal and he told us that they ordered a mobile pizza oven and a food truck! They are taking their culinary creations on the road and you can book the truck for private events. Um. Yes, please!
