We went for lunch at Prego's after replenishing our junk food stash from Mark's & Spencer.
For the month of May 2010, their 2-course business set lunch was attractively priced at $52 (without wine).
The BF got the Vitello All'uccelletto con Funghi Biologici e Pure di Patate as his main course, veal loin with mushroom and mashed potatoes. The braised veal stew was typical Tuscan comfort food. The sweet undertones of the dessert wine infused the tender soft veal and tomato-based gravy.
I ordered the Risotto of the Day, with Bacon and Mushrooms ($34). The shitake and white button mushrooms lent an earthy flavour to balance the salty smoky bacon. The risotto was creamy, delicate and wonderfully subtle.
The Cream of Potato, was the Soup of The Day. This was part of the Set Lunch. Creamy and full-bodied, but yet surprisingly delicate.
