Entrees:

Fish of the Day
The fish of the day this time was Chilean sea bass, it normally does not come with the Brussels sprouts and mushroom combination, but we ordered it with the vegetables as a substitute. The fish had a perfect sear, which gave it a crisp outside while still retaining its moisture inside.

Caesar Salad with Ahi Tuna
Ok, a little disclaimer. The Caesar salad normally is not served with Ahi tuna BUT if you ask for it there is a pretty good chance that you will be able to have it. The salad was lightly dressed with Caesar dressing, which I appreciated because a Caesar salad drenched with a lake of gloopy Caesar dressing is certainly more than a little unpleasant. But no worries! This Caesar had just enough where it could be tasted, but was not overwhelming. The Ahi tuna was a perfect accompaniment to the salad and gave it a different kind of zip from the usual grilled chicken or shrimp that normally accompanies Caesar salads.

Wine
Oh! Did forgot to mention that it is BYOB? No worries if you forget, there is a liquor store across the street, which is utterly convenient


Bread oil at Basso Cafe
You also get this fantastic garlic infused olive oil with your bread basket. It is really delicious, so be careful not to accidentally overdo it. You probably will, but don't say I didn't warn you.
