It’s Friday! Who needs a drink? It’s 5 o’clock somewhere, right?
I seated myself by the window, which gave me the perfect view of outside:
Pretty! I love Brentwood.
I also took some time to check out the inside of the place. It was pretty empty!
The friendly waiter quickly brought me water and a menu. I studied it carefully.
Vino Nadoz certainly had a great selection of wines – it’s too bad I didn’t have any clue on what to order! After telling the waiter the type of wine I prefer (bubbly and sweet), he suggested an Italian moscato. I’ll take it!
Okay, so the wine was taken care of. Next – time for food!
I might not know much about wine, but I certainly do know my way around a food menu!
It was late, so I didn’t want any ‘real’ food. I wanted something sweet, and when I saw that Vino Nadoz served bread pudding, my decision was made!
I ordered it with a side of gooey butter cake ice cream from Serendipity!
All together now:
So how was it? Well…to be honest, it wasn’t the best bread pudding I’ve ever had. It was sort of spongey and rubbery – like it wasn’t made fresh, and had been sitting out for a while. Bad. It’s too bad, because the caramel glaze that covered the bread pudding was delicious!
Thankfully, the ice cream was much better. It was creamy, sweet, and tasted just like gooey butter cake! At least half of my dessert was delicious
Service was great, and since it was such a quiet night, Walt, the manager, came out to chat with me for a while! He was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable about wine. Instead of scoffing at me for ordered a sweet Moscato, he made me feel okay about my decision, while gently urging me in the direction of fuller bodied wines. While I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for sweet bubbly wines, I am looking forward to eventually expanding my palate.
All in all, a decent night at Vino Nadoz! I would definitely return here for more wine. I think this would make a great girls night spot, as well!
Until next time, friends!
