dining at Level 43

My friend chose italian food for her birthday, and most italian restaurants closes quite early but Zafferano was one of the few that opens till late on a Friday, so that was how this venue was decided.

This place sounded romantic and cosy, but actually it was pretty noisy and vibrant. All eyes were on the bar area, right in the middle of the restaurant, where the lighting centerpiece is located.

Happy hour was till 8pm, and a glass of prosecco goes for $8++.

Tap water is available and the warm loaf of bread served pre-dinner, was really nice.

Ordered squid ink risotto, braised iberico pork cheeks, beef tenderloin with foie gras and boston lobster pilaf rice.

The portion for pork cheeks and beef tenderloin was rather small. Liked the pork cheeks. Tender meat and homely taste. Baby carrots were well-cooked. The beef was done medium rare, and the pan-fried goose liver was nicely quivery.

All of us liked the Boston lobster and the gratinated creme fresche sauce. Yums. The pilaf rice with raisin and pine nuts helped to fill us up. Otherwise, we'd still be hungry.

Service was generally good, but sometimes they're just too busy attending to other diners. Short-handed?
