Dish Up at Dario’s Brasserie


I keep coming back to Dario’s Brasserie for their casual and classy ambiance and delicious food.

On the previous post, “Mussel Up at Dario’s Brasserie“, I featured Dario’s mussel entrees. This post features other delicious dishes from appetizers to desserts at Dario’s Brasserie.

For starters, aka appetizers:

Complimentary Bread

  • Description: French baguette slices with butter
  • Price: Complimentary
  • FoodMe YUM Rating: 7.5 out of 10
  • FoodMe Value Rating: 10 out of 10

I like their warm french baguette slices and soft butter. It’s french bread the way I like it. Crisp, crunchy crust and soft, slightly chewy inside.

The bread goes very well with the following dish.

Escargots

  • Description: Escargots with garlic, parsley, and butter
  • Price: $10.00 lunch or $12.00 dinner
  • FoodMe YUM Rating: 8.25 out of 10
  • FoodMe Value Rating: 8.25 out of 10

Escargot is cooked land snails commonly served as an appetizer in French restaurants. Dario’s has a traditional garlic butter version. The snail itself is more texture than flavor. The garlic butter is the dominant flavor in this dish. Think soft chewy bites immersed in garlic butter. Then, dip the french bread in the garlic butter goodness.

Mixed Field Greens

  • Description: Mixed field greens with goat cheese, tomato, red onion, and Dario’s Brasserie dressing
  • Price: $5.00
  • FoodMe YUM Rating: 8.25 out of 10
  • FoodMe Value Rating: 8.25 out of 10

This is a simple, refreshing salad. I like the combination of ingredients particularly the goat cheese and Dario’s Brasserie dressing. Dario’s dressing is a creamy balsamic vinaigrette dressing that makes the salad.

Socca Caprese

  • Description: Sliced tomato, fresh mozzarella and fresh basil arranged on a chickpea flour pancake
  • Price: $9.50
  • FoodMe YUM Rating: 8.25 out of 10
  • FoodMe Value Rating: 8.25 out of 10

This is another simple, refreshing appetizer. I enjoy a caprese salad on a hot summer day. The chickpea flour pancake is a great unique complement. The socca caprese is no longer served with the new fall menu but my guess is this dish will be back on a warmer season.

French Onion Gratinee

  • Description: Bowl of French onion soup, traditional French classic
  • Price: $8.00
  • FoodMe YUM Rating: 8.75 out of 10
  • FoodMe Value Rating: 8.75 out of 10

This is my favorite french onion soup in town. I love Dario’s rich, flavorful beef broth with gooey, melted cheese, soaked bread, and sweet onions. It’s even better on a cold day.

For main entrees:

36 Hour Boneless Beef Short Ribs

  • Description: Boneless beef short ribs low-temperature cooked for 36 hours
  • Price: $26.00
  • FoodMe YUM Rating: 9 out of 10
  • FoodMe Value Rating: 9 out of 10

Tender, savory meat with homemade mashed potatoes and sauteed veggies. If you want to be wooed by tender meat morsels, then this is your dish. Your taste buds will swoon over the 36 hour ribs.

Dario’s Brasserie Cheeseburger

  • Description: Dario’s Brasserie cheeseburger with grilled onions, gruyère cheese, Dario’s brasserie sauce and frites
  • Price: $11.00 lunch or $13.00 dinner
  • FoodMe YUM Rating: 9 out of 10
  • FoodMe Value Rating: 9 out of 10

Burgerlicious. Soft toasted bun with a crispy buttered side, meaty, juicy burger patty, flavorful, caramelized onions, melted cheese, and chipotle-like mayonnaise. Sooo goood and demolished along with Dario’s awesome fries.

For dessert:

Beer Float

  • Description: Indeman’s Framboise Raspberry Lambic with vanilla ice cream
  • Price: $6.00
  • FoodMe YUM Rating: 8 out of 10
  • FoodMe Value Rating: 8 out of 10

This is a surprising delight where raspberry beer and vanilla ice cream meet. It’s a great combination of sweet, slightly tart, and beer dimension that works!

Chocolate Ganache Cake

  • Description: Chocolate ganache cake
  • Price: $6.00

  • FoodMe Value Rating: 9 out of 10

Rich chocolate nirvana. What brings this dessert to another heightening level is the caramel. I am not a big caramel person but this isn’t the processed candy or bottled caramel. It’s buttery, homemade rich caramel fudge that is divine with the chocolate. The vanilla ice cream is a nice complement. Holy good.

From appetizers to main entrees to desserts, dish up at Dario’s!
