Rev. Dr. Irene Goldberg won the $100 gift certificate to La Fia restaurant for taking The Residences online survey! The survey is distributed once a quarter to all of the residents living in the apartment communities to receive feedback and learn how to make everyone’s experience even better! A different prize is awarded to one person each quarter.
Rev. Dr. Irene Goldberg had an amazing time at La Fia restaurant and would like to share with everyone her experience.
“As last month’s lucky recipients of the LaFia Restaurant Gift Card from the Residences at Christina Landing, we thank the Buccini/Pollin Group. We were well taken care of by the hostess, Camille (also a resident here) who shared her favorite items with us, our delightful servers Riley and Tasha, and the brilliantly creative Chef Bryan Sikora.
My husband and I shared the delicious, innovative Small Plate of Potted Olive Oil Poached Salmon with crème fraiche, capers and dill weed served with toasted breads…divine is the only word to describe it. We followed that with a First Course dish, the Pan Seared Sea Scallops with cauliflower puree and black truffle, in a warm brown butter vinaigrette…yum; then a Second Course dish –Roasted Natural Beef Tenderloin & Braised Short Rib with smoked pearl onions, Swiss chard, lentils and spiced jus…spectacular combination that we thoroughly enjoyed. Then the climax of –Butterscotch Pudding with toasted chocolate cake, hazelnut crunch and expresso-Grand Marnier Anglaise as well as the White Chocolate Bread Pudding with carmelized white chocolate ice cream, pumpkin puree and pine nut feuilletine…both to die for, no kidding.
Along with a wonderful ambiance in the main dining room, this assortment of delicacies demonstrated the talent and quality of the master chef and his staff.
Our experience last night was perfection. Four Stars.”
