Cinquecento, South End

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of brunch-ing at the somewhat new restaurant Cinquecento located in the trendy SOWA neighborhood. 

Not knowing what to expect from the menu and being on a "serious" diet, I was excited to see what Cinquecento had to offer!

Of course, I started with an extra spicy delicious Bloody Mary... what is brunch without one of these? For a starter, my friend and I shared a kale salad. Now let's get one thing straight, I HATE salad. Don't ever eat it voluntarily. But my friend highly recommended this one so I tried it. OMG it was AMAZING! First of all, my newfound love for kale is unstoppable and the lemon vinaigrette and truffle honey was a fabulous touch.

For our main course, we both got poached eggs on truffled polenta. Writing about this is making my mouth water. It was light but totally satisfying. Perfectly portioned though if someone offered me more, I'd eat it up in a heartbeat :)

I have to commend the interior decorators of Cinquecento. It boasts a very modern, urban style without being too pretentious. I don't expect anything less than an Aquitaine restaurant. The location is awesome but that goes without saying. Service was fantastic. Food was superb. Can't wait for the patio to open up. 

Though only 4 months old, I'm confident this restaurant will make its mark as a must-go-to in the South End neighborhood.... Ciao!!

LASIK Surgery @ Boston Laser

Soooo ... I had LASIK surgery yesterday! I have been wearing glasses since middle school and though my prescription wasn't awful - it was annoying enough for me to want LASIK. 

I documented my entire experience so you all could see how easy and wonderful it is - I was dancing seconds after my surgery was over! ;) Less than 24 hours later, I am seeing better than 20/20!

What an amazing feeling. 

I'm not blogging about Boston Laser because this is my place of employment but because I truly believe we change people's lives (like my own) on a daily basis!

Check it out! PS... I don't normally slur when I talk, I just took Valium for the 1st time LOL. Ciao bellas!
