Tonight: Multi-course dinners at Asti d'Italia and Fleming's Steakhouse
It's a tough choice: Which multi-course meal, paired with wine, will you choose tonight? You'd better decide quickly, because both are bound to fill up.
Asti D'Italia, at 14648 Delaware Street in Broomfield, presents A Taste of Italy: North West, a four-course meal featuring ahi tuna tartare (with a Lange '07 chardonnay hailing from Gagliasso), truffled forest mushroom risotto (with a Barbera d'Alba '08 wine from Grimaldi), Colorado prime rib (with a Barolo "Rocca" '04 vintage, also from Gagliasso) and a fresh fruit pastry crown (paired with a Moscato d'Asti from -- where else? -- Mosca). The dinner is $60; to make a reservation, call 303-357-3900 or go to www.astiditalia.com.
On the other end of town, Fleming's Steakhouse, 191 Inverness Drive West in Englewood, is hosting a four-course dinner featuring Kelly Fleming's estate-bottled Napa Valley wines, which Fleming will discuss in person. The menu includes seared diver scallops (paired with an '08 sauvignon blanc), hazelnut-crusted Colorado lamb medallions (with an '06 cabernet), porcini-dusted filet mignon (with an '05 cabernet) and wild-berry and mascarpone cannolis with Amaretto-laced caramelized figs and coffee or tea. The cost is $85; for more information, call 303-768-0827 or visit www.flemingssteakhouse.com.
