a-MAZING food at Five-O
On Saturday, a good friend and I had dinner at Five-O on Shore Road in Ogunquit, Maine. They are closing for the next month or so, so they hosted a special dinner on the 23rd -- come in for dinner and get 50% off your entree. That meant that we had a $60 bill instead of a $90 bill, but let me tell you, I'd pay more than that for such deliciousness.
We started with the Beef Brochette -- skewered strips of melt-in-your-mouth fillet mignon served over a cool and refreshing artichoke salad. For our main dishes, we both had the Veal Cheeks over creamy polenta with rosemary gremolata and mushroom confit. The veal cut like butter, and was possibly the most succulent and tender dish I have ever eaten (it's rivaled only by the secreto de cerdo at Paulino's). For dessert, I had the vanilla bean Panna Cotta with strawberries and balsamic. My only regret is that I was so distracted by the food that I didn't take any pictures!
I'd recommend this place any day.
