Scott Babe and I tried a new Italian restaurant tonight in Montclair called Acappello. Our favorite Chinese restaurant, Sesame, was once in this location. Anyway, click here for a pretty set of images from Flickr. We sat at the table that is the third frame on the link. We actually ate at their sister restaurant, Cara Mia, in Millburn that night we saw Melissa & Joe Gorga! Because we liked Cara Mia, we thought this should be good, too. Not quite, but I think we simply ordered the wrong things. Their specials weren't special! I tried the seared scallops with risotto and was disappointed. Just bland and the hint of fish taste didn't help things. Nothing to write home about or blog about! And Scott's "special" was the short ribs. Scott thought they were tough and needed more cooking time to be the right tenderness. Have we become giant food snobs or what?! We will, however, try Acappello again and maybe stick to the menu items.
