Long time readers will know of my feelings for Isabellas. My last review of the restaurant is here. Well just want to say that I have eaten there a couple of times since then, including dinner over the weekend and its still at the top of my list in places to dine in Frederick. It’s great with a bunch of people, all sampling the dishes. They’ve added wines and have weekly wine specials. Of note last night (besides the usual standards I love) was the portobello mushroom with greens and hazelnut cream and the artichoke tops with crabmeat and saffron butter. The latter looked so good that I could see Mrs. F weighing the risks of anaphylactic shock over trying them.
The warm bread pudding with caramel was great and I think the baklava was pretty good as well, but I didn’t get a chance to fully taste it as the Fredlings devoured it.
