Look no further, here are your Saturday night dinner plans!
Sometimes we have the greatest plans and ideas, they are forced to change and the result is better than planned. Other times, not so fortunate. But, this is a tail of good fortune and pasta! Sugo is an Italian restaurant located in Montgomery County (Potomac, MD) serving up classy style, homemade pasta and fire roasted pizza. We couldn’t help but stare at everyone around us and drool a little over their food.
Our waiter was everything I would want in a wait staff. He helped us with the menu and gave us wonderful suggestions. He helped make my toss up on choices easy and even directed our taste buds to an item I was writing off.
We started with the capresse salad, you could see why I would write this off. When we eat together, I don’t even bother looking at the salad type appetizers. I know it must contain meat and/or cheese, added bonus if it is both. This was not your traditional capresse, at least in the sense that am I familiar with. Thinly sliced green apples, fresh juicy blackberries, homemade mozzarella and drizzled with balsamic vinegar and oil.
It was to die for. The tart berries and apples were sweetened with the balsamic and enhanced by the cheese. I melted with every bite. ($12)
Next, came the meals. I had the blue crab gnocchi. It was creamy and loaded with lump blue crab, peas and roasted corn. Though it was cream based it was light and cheesey. The roasted corn and crab gave it a sweetness without it being too rich. The gnocchi was absolutely the best I have ever had. The soft plump dumplings were made in house and rounded out the flavors of this dish. ($16)
He had the lasagna, again with homemade noodles. The noodles were soft and thick providing a good foundation for each cheesy meaty layer. The italian herb tomato sauce was a little sweet and not the main ingredient. It was certainly the fresh mozzarella, ricotta and beef that owned this dish. He tried to savor every bite and expressed this was the best that he has had. ($15)
