Plymouth's Fiamma Grille can always be counted on for an excellent dinner. Fiamma has been one of our "go-to" places for dining for several years.
This dinner occasion came about as a result of a program that Fiamma offers for trips to events in the Detroit area -- baseball games. plays, musicals. etc. Typically (as we did this time) you'll meet at Fiamma for pre-event appetizers followed by a luxury bus trip to and from the event. Dinner at Fiamma after return is optional, but available at a 20% discount. On this occasion, after apps from noon to 1:00 p.m. and bussing to the Detroit Opera House, we enjoyed main-floor seating for a matinee presentation of "An American in Paris". Fiamma even provided us with snack bags of nuts and chocolates and a bottle of water for the show. FYI -- the next trip (half sold out as of this writing) will be to "Les Mis" on Sunday, March 4, 2018. See their website for details.
Dinner on return was very enjoyable, though service suffered with many patrons having dinner after the Detroit trip in addtion to the regular Sunday evening crowd and a celebration in a nearby private dining room. Kudos that server Mike did notice water-spotted wine glasses at our table and replaced them without being asked. Other parts of his service suffered as he was rushed, but we'll give him a pass based on getting slammed with a lot of diners all at the same time.
New on the menu is a terrific salmon that we'd not had before -- Loch Duart salmon, so named for the small Scottish company that raises this fish. We're lovers of Norwegian and Icelandic salmon and have to say that this salmon is the equal of the other two. The perfectly-prepared fish was served with "truffle twice-fried potatoes, fresh asparagus and herb compound butter", price $24. Paired with this from Fiamma's extensive wine list were glasses of Cloudline Pinot Noir 2014 (Willamette Valley) at $10/glass -- excellent pairing with the salmon!
Bottom line, even with slow service on this occasion (not the norm), we contiune to give Fiamma our highest rating on the strength of the quality of the food. If you're in or close to Plymouth and looking for a good dinner spot, don't even hesitate to go here. Note: Fiamma is dinner only -- sorry, no lunch. Enjoy!!
