Dinner with Andre'

Dinner plate, Andre's 
Mary and I had such a good time tonight, chez Andre' - the premier gourmand* steak house of Naples- see the site here - it's a cozy place located centrally in the heart of Naples.

 *noun
  1. The definition of a gourmand is a gourmet, or a person who enjoys good food and drink.
    An example of a gourmand is someone who has no problem spending $200 for a meal at a Michelin star restaurant.

 


The first thing you see upon entering is photos of the owner, Andre', with Speaker John Boehner, and Marco Rubio....the bar is to the left.  The manager suggested a beautiful "house" Malbec- which I really enjoyed.  (The wine list is quite extensive)
Our dinner: Sliced tomatoes with onion and blue cheese, with a piquant sauce...followed by a medium pink Porterhouse for two accompanied by shoestring battered onion rings and fabulous double order of creamed spinach!  Finishing with- wait for it- PROFITEROLES !!! 


Andre's Naples
So good !  Mary had coffee with her half, and I finished off the dry and smoky Malbec, a lovely mate with the yummy dessert...notice the creme fraiche on the side- so good !  Mary also reminded me about one of her favorite blogs, called Manger, out of the Medoc region of France- check out Manger here it's pretty fabulous- anything Mary likes usually is.  Enjoy!  Mangia!  Cheers!  DF *****

    Hi Dean,
    Wow, I don't know where to begin. All this fabulousness at MP! That first chair in the tapestry cover. Very Jacques Garcia. A real statement piece with a definitively aristocratic air. Love that sofa with the tiger seat cushions. I need it. Dare I ask the price as shown? I'm going to try to put together that tomato cum blue cheese avec onions appetizer for my dinner party tomorrow evening. And I'm now going to check out the Manger blog right now. A plus tard, Jeanne
