I haven't been here in years and my friend wanted to try something new, so we went to Meritage. We were seated immediately in the bar section. That was great, because even tho its in the bar, its comfortable and not so loud that you can't have a conversation.
It was a Tuesday night and the place was packed! They had the 2 / $24 special. That is $24 per person. The deal was to select an entree off the specials menu, along with either an appetizer or dessert. So I got the appetizer - shrimp cocktail and my friend got the dessert - a chocolate cake with a thick layer of peanut butter mousse, dipped in chocolate ganache. The shrimp cocktail was presented in a bowl if chipped ice, and there were 9 jumbo shrimp on the plate! No skimping there! The choice of entree was vast. My friend got the seafood pasta dish. It had a pink cream sauce and was loaded with lobster, shrimp and scallops. I got the penne Jambalya. Penne in a rich cream sauce, full of chicken, shrimp and chirizo. OMG. Magnificent! There are also salmon dishes, an upscale meatloaf dish, and a few chicken dishes to choose from. Something for everyone. And they definitely don't skimp on the portions. The only thing I missed was some bread on the table to scoop up that lovely sauce on my pasta.
They also have specials on other nights, and they have a wine / food paring by reservation for $25. All well worth it. I am really glad I reconnected with Meritage again. I have forgotten how truly exceptional it is. Don't hesitate to go here!
