Tonight we had dinner at Traditions- 6:30 Reservations. The sun set at 6:30 but was covered by black clouds this evening.
Joe McCormick and Marvilla Marzan were the entertainers for the evening with the sounds of Broadway, Latin hits and all styles of popular dance music. We have been enjoying Joe's music since we began coming to the island some 30 years now.
We have followed Andrea, the host at Traditions, through out the years as he moved from Bellinis on Captiva to Riviera on gulf Drive to Dolce Vita on Periwinkle and now at Traditions on Gulf Drive. For dinner we started with Beef Carpaccio with Arugula, Reggiano, Capers, and EVOO. Al ordered the Veal Special...medallions in a rich reduction sauce served with Portobello mushroom, new potatoes, broccolini, and spinach. I had Naturel Veal Artichoke with lemon sauce served with broccoli and dauphinoise potatoes. We enjoyed dining with great music.
