Lunch at Romano's Macaroni Grill


On a trip to Birmingham, we chose Romano's Macaroni Grill for lunch. Our server, Savannah, was a delight and as we were seated let us know that we were there during brunch time and Mimosas and Bloody Marys were $2 each. We happily ordered one of each. They certainly didn't skimp on the flavors. Both were delicious.

While we read the menus, freshly baked hot bread was delivered to the table along with a seasoned olive oil for dipping.

The appetizer portion of the menu is divided into two separate sections. You may order individual appetizers or choose two for $9.50. We selected Baked Prosciutto & Mozzarella for $6.00. Thin slices of prosciutto are wrapped around bites of mozzarella and baked in a rich, flavorful tomato sauce served with charred flatbread. A perfect beginning for the meal.

Harold decided to select his entrée from the brunch menu. The skillet breakfasts are baked in one skillet in a brick oven. He chose the Farmhouse Skillet: three eggs, fonduta, thick bacon, Italian sausage, peppers, onions, arrabbiata sauce, crispy Parmesan potatoes and ciabatta crostino. $12.00

How could I possibly pass up an opportunity to enjoy Lobster Ravioli? Freshly made ravioli filled with lobster and covered with a chardonnay cream sauce $18.00. I added a Caesar salad for an additional $3.20. Rich, decadent and creamy. I ate every bite. But it IS the beginning of my birthday week celebration so I justified the calories and fat grams that way.

Unfortunately, no room for dessert this visit!
