Christopher's Restaurant & Catering

We've been to Christopher's plenty of times, and the food is always stellar, so what I'm about to tell you might not be news.

We went there for a tasting tonight since they're doing our wedding catering, and got to sample tons of things not on their daily menu. Namely: Angel Hair Carbonara, Turkey Roulades, Greek chicken (stuffed with spinach, pine nuts & feta) and plenty of sides. they were all magically delicious. The catering chef/manager, Holly, could not have been lovelier. Quick to tell us how we could save money, where we could cut corners, and even providing the linens through a local party supplier without a surcharge. The best part? Even though she knew I was firm on another baker making our pies (that's right - no cake for us!), she brought us all out dessert after the tasting, on the house. My mom and I both ordered the bread pudding because I recalled having it years ago and it was amazing. Mr. FvF had the tiramisu.

Christopher's bread pudding is the stuff dreams are made of. I had the assiest of assy days, and one bite of this dense concoction washed all of my troubles away in a way that would make Calgon dart away with their tail between their legs. The portion size was as big as my head.

The texture and weight was perfect, nice crispy edges on top and the butter rum sauce was to die for. If you never do anything with your life, do this: go to Christopher's and order the bread pudding. All of their desserts are tops, but they can't even touch this one. And don't get ahead of yourself - only go there for dessert if you plan on heeding my advice. Their daily menu is filled with gastric delights that will NOT allow room for your sweet tooth at the end (though I do highly recommend, on another visit, ordering the chicken salad-stuffed tomato plate, the pot roast stew, the chicken parm, or the Manhattan). Don't even think about getting it to go, either - you have to have it warm, right out of their lovin' oven.
