For all my foodies out there, please check out Cynthia’s Ristorante in beautiful downtown Paducah. The restaraunt was quiet and charming the service was wonderful and the food incredible.
Grilled Fresh Mozzarella Salad wrapped in Prosciutto and Romaine Lettuce finished with a Sun-dried Tomato Vinaigrette
This was a tangy interesting way to start the meal, in almost napoleon style, tomato, mozzarella, and prosciutto were layered together and wrapped in romaine, grilled, placed a grilled piece of ciabatta and then a sweet and sour sun dried tomato vinaigrette to finish. Very delicious!
For the main course: I wanted the Duck Risotto but they were out, so I turned to my old friend the pig,
Pork Tenderloin – Wrapped in Apple Wood Smoked Bacon and Oak Grilled, Finished with a Port Wine Plum Reduction and Gran Marnier Carmelized Onions, Served with pan seared zucchini and yellow squash and a twice baked potato.
The pork was perfectly cooked and the bacon added a nice salty finish, the squash was just right, warm and tasty with out being over cooked and the potato was unique.
Homemade shortbread with a berry pastry cream and fresh strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries to garnish.
If you have the chance to visit I would recommend this restaurant!
