Prelog's Dinner - Restaurant Review; Fritz Müller Semi-Sparkling Rosé, and Paraiso Pinot Noir 2013 from Monterrey, California


We were fortunate enough to be able to visit Prelog's one last time before they temporarily closed in search of a new location. We were seated at a table with full view of the kitchen - perfect for watching the artistry involved in making such tremendous food!

Sassy Wine Bellly - Prelog's Dinner
Hamachi with compressed watermelon ($14) - every bit was savory and sweet at the same time, and perfectly balanced.

Sassy Wine Bellly - Prelog's Dinner
Heirloom tomato salad with mozzarella bursts ($13) - a light and lovely salad!

Sassy Wine Bellly - Prelog's Dinner
Snapper with mussel sauce, fingerling potatoes, eggplant purée, asparagus, zucchini, radishes, and sun dried tomatoes. Crisp skin and so flavorful - around $25~$30.

Sassy Wine Bellly - Prelog's Dinner
The tenderest chicken next to Bess Bistro's French-cut chicken, served with chard, carrots, and polenta - around $25~$30. Hubby thinks Prelog's ranks up there with Alan Wong's on Maui (although you can't beat the Hawaiian setting of AW).

Sassy Wine Belly - Fritz Müller Semi-Sparkling Rosé
This Fritz Müller Semi-Sparkling Rosé from Pfalz, Germany is very dry, yummy, and so food friendly! Need to check with the Austin Wine Merchant to see if they have it! Around $30 a bottle at the restaurant.

Sassy Wine Belly - Paraiso Pinot Noir 2013
This Paraiso Pinot Noir 2013 from Monterrey, California ($13 a glass, $39 a bottle) tasted more like a Syrah, with dark fruit and smoke, and extremely dark in color. Weird for a PN but tasty. 

Sassy Wine Bellly - Prelog's Dinner
We had the Antonelli's Cheese Platter ($13) for dessert. It included Gorgonzola, Parmesan, and Brie. We would have liked more bread for the cheese tray.

What a wonderful experience! Florian and Romana go out of their way to insure that you have a fabulous time, and I can't wait to try out their new location!
