Friend of YDKJ and amazing photographer, Sal Petruzelli-Marino, is having an exhibit at Caffe Galleria in Lambertville through January 6, 2015. We took this opportunity to check out the restaurant while we checked out Sal’s beautiful works throughout the public space.
We started out with a hummus appetizer plate and the soup of the day. The hummus was slightly grainy and not over-blended which we really liked. It was well seasoned and served with pita triangles, cucumber and tomato slices. The soup of the day was shrimp chowder bisque. It was delicious!
There were lots of veggies and chunks of shrimp all in a tomato-y creamy base. We’d never heard of a chowder bisque but we hope we see more of this on future menus.
Our first entree was Eggplant Rolatini which came with layers of grilled eggplant, baby spinach and ricotta cheese and covered in marinara and mozzarella. The marinara was very sweet and a nice complement to the earthy eggplant. It came with a variety of pasta options including gluten-free. They have a gluten-free and vegetarian friendly menu.
We also tried a chicken and shrimp special of the day. The chicken was blackened without being overly charred and very flavorful. Jumbo shrimp was piled on top and everything was topped with a honey pineapple barbecue glaze. This was an amazing combination of flavors that we’d eat again day after day. The dish was served with mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables.
We should also mention that some fresh baked rolls came with the meal. They were dense little guys that could almost be biscuits. They scooped up left over marinara very well.
Caffe Galleria is a gorgeous little restaurant that also does pizza, breakfast, lunch, takeout and even has delivery hours. What ever time of day you go, you will have a nice meal served by friendly waitstaff.
