    Everything looks so good! I agree that happy hours are the best opportunity to try new food. Unfortunately, if they have a GREAT happy hour, it will be hard for me to pull away and order something from their regular menu.

    And calamari? Yes, please!

  2. great happy hour prices! i remember when this place was ‘bite’.

    i love the little pigs design! so cute!

    Gnochetti and fresh ricotta have to be some of my favorite things to eat. And I don’t understand people who don’t like calamari… it’s crispy fried goodness with a kicky sauce!

    Good to know that Tuesdays are happy hour all night long… I could totally see stuffing myself silly on HH dishes! And $1 wine – how can you beat that??

    My husband’s only exception to staying away from seafood is when it’s fried. Calamari is okay with him, as are fish and chips and sometimes a bite of fish taco. I guess he goes by the rule of thumb that anything fried is good!

    The menu description of the ricotta crostini sounds so plain that I would never think to order it. I’m glad that it turned out to be so good!

    Hi Darlene – Yes, that could be a problem… you could always order one dish to share though, right? In addition to HH choices of course!

    Hi CC – I never went here when it was Bite, oh well. I agree, I love their logo!

    Hi Leanne – They also have a Wed night pasta special thing that I also might want to try… if I can pull myself away from the ricotta dishes.

    Hi Alyssa – My bf is the same way with seafood – he really likes fish and chips! Though, he won’t eat calamari… but that just means more calamari for me! 🙂
