I was itching to sit outside and get something yummy to eat, I ventured down to the Bishop's Collar, but found all their outside tables occupied, so my friend Donal and I walked around the block to Rembrandt's. Luckily, they have awnings covering their outside tables, because the weather turned and rain started falling on us as soon as we sat down. I've sung my praises about Rembrandt's happy hour in a previous post, but this time I'm singing about their food.
The tavern menu is available outside all day long and provides a nice selection of sandwiches, entrees and wood-oven pizzas.
Donal ordered the Paesano Burger. His huge burger came topped with gorgonzola cheese, bacon, sautéed onions, garlic aioli, and french fries all drizzled with a reduced balsamic syrup.
I tried the scampi pizza. It came out with a bubbly crust and was covered with rock shrimp, roasted garlic, broccoli rabe, asiago and pecorino cheeses, and red pepper flakes. I enjoyed the spicy shrimp in combination with the tangy cheeses.
