The Hot Zone had the pleasure of dining at Flo on a beautiful Sunday night, arriving at 8pm. We were greeted by their friendly, courteous and may I say beautiful hostess, who led us to our table which had ambient candles to create a romantic feel. The restaurants’ lighting is dimly lite giving a warm and cozy feel.
The night began with delicious summer cocktails which included the Passion Fruit Martini and Red Sangria. I have to say, Flo’s Sangria is probably the best that I’ve had. It was so good and actually packed a punch. The Passion Fruit Martini was so exotic and fruity, it made me want to savor the taste on a beautiful tropical island.
For appetizers we opted for the Truffle Mac & Cheese, Calamari and the Kobe Beef Sliders. The Truffle Mac and Cheese was to die for!! They made it with a generous amount of breadcrumbs on top with Portobello mushrooms inside. Truffle & Portobello mushrooms are two of my favorite things. Ahhh, it was so good. The Kobe Beef Sliders were juicy and seasoned to perfection and made just the way I like it. The calamari was equally as good and they gave a very generous portion.
For dinner we had the Miso Glazed Chilean Sea Bass and Penne A La Vodka with Chicken. Everything proved to be as good as it looked. The glaze on the Chilean Sea Bass was mouthwatering and the sea bass was cooked to perfection. The Penne A La Vodka was generously portioned and boasting of amazing flavors.
Surprisingly we had enough room to order dessert and opted for Flo’s famous Fried Oreos with vanilla ice cream. I must say this was the highlight of my month! The fried oreos gave me life. It’s just one of those things in life that may be a little bad for you, but so damn good for you at the same time. When you go to Flo, you must order the Fried Oreos, you will not be disappointed.
