The Spoon is Still Saucy

My last visit to Saucy Spoon was in November 2010 when it was in a different location and only open part time. They are now downtown and open 6 days a week, I happened to be visiting friends in Mount Dora who suggested we go to the Saucy Spoon at their recently opened downtown location for a special 6 course menu with Wine Parings on Monday September 26, (normally not open on Mondays). This was a special event so might not be a fair comparison, but from the time we opened the door until we left a couple of hours later, everything was wonderful. 
As in my prior visit, the food and service were both great. The nice wine parings were coordinated with Maggie's Attic (also in downtown Mount Dora). A representative was present to discuss each wine and answer questions.

The new space is very nice, warm and inviting. A nice evening all around and I will definitely make a return visit.

The following is the menu from the dinner:
  • Fresh Mozzarella wrapped in  prosciutto and basil topped with a Balsamic drizzle
    • Served with Ruffino Proseco
  • Artisan Greens with Smokey Blue Cheese, Blackberries, and caramelized onions and white balsamic dressing.
    • Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc (Spit Fire vineyards)
  • Salmon en Papillote
    • Hogue Reserve Chardonnay
  • Pork with Port Wine Cherry Sauce
    • Simi Pinot Noir
  • Beef Tenderloin Medallion with nutmeg-coffee rub
    • Franciscan Magnificat (Meritage Oakville Estate)
  • Pear & Blue Cheese Tart
    • Inniskillin Pearl Vidal Ice-wine
