Rave(s): 3 Sons & Pinnacle Vodka

First: 3 Sons Restaurant in Arvada near 64th & Indiana.  We went last night for MIL's birthday.  Best Italian I've had in a really long time.  It's nice, but not ultra dressy (I was in a sweater and black pants)

We had their Valentine's special for $20 which included soup/salad, entree, and dessert.  We also ordered 2 apps: a plate of sausage & peppers and caprese salad, both were good.

MIL had house salad (nothing spectacular), and Macheronni Aglio with shrimp and liked it a lot.  SFIL and I had the Portabella Soup and Stuffed Chicken Breast Florentine.  I want to go back for it every single day.  The soup was amazing - creamy, rich flavor.  The chicken pasta was divine- "Filled with spinach, shallot, pernod & gruyere cheese, served with hand crafted macheronni & creamy piccata sauce." 

DH had the soup, New York Strip with whipped potatoes, tourne vegetables & red wine glaze.  I tasted the potatoes, and they had a deep flavor, and DH said the steak was very tender.  Little G had noodles with homemade cheese sauce and a fresh fruit bowl (apple sticks, grapes, strawberries) for $5. 

We all had the "Death by Chocolate Cake" with a raspberry sauce that was yummy.  They had a lady sing Happy Birthday to MIL in Italian and she was talented.

My only beef with them is that they don't have a fold down baby changing station in the bathroom - or large counter - yet they have quite a few high chairs and I know there was at least one other child under 2 when we were there.

Second:  Pinnacle Vodka, Chocolate Whipped flavor.  Bought this on a whim at the liquor store, for about $12.  Tossed it in the freezer, and it might be my new favorite drink.  It tastes almost like a chocolate martini, just by itself.  I may or may not have had 3 of them since about 4pm today. (It was needed)

  • Now I really want italian food! I havn't been since they moved from 44th and fed but have wanted to. Happy to hear they are just as yummy over here.

  • They have an amazing lunch deal - 2 for $5.  But the last few times we've been for lunch (they are just up the street from my office) the portions have gotten smaller and the food not as good.  But - probably different for dinner as I've never seen the portabello soup on the lunch menu.
