Forgive me guys, I realize these are not the most appetizing pictures. I didn't take my camera so I asked a friend if I could use her iphone. And, well, you know, there you go.
In early September, Northampton (oh this lovely town) had a "Northampton Restaurant Week". A long list of restaurants participated. They each offered special 3-course meals for 20 or 25 dollars. Not too bad for three courses! So I grabbed four other friends and we went to a place I'd never been to before: Spoleto's. I have to say, we were all really really happy with our meals. I got the filet mignon with fries and it was amazing. I live in France, shouldn't I have had filet mignon by now!? This may be normal (or not) but I usually always need ketchup with my fries. That's just how I like them. Well the filet mignon pepper sauce was delicious and I didn't even bother with ketchup. Finally, the trio of chocolate mousse, chocolate flourless cake and chocolate dipped strawberry... so good! We left (very) full and satisfied!
It's the middle of October and I still have a bunch of places I'd like to go to before I leave in the middle of December. How will I fit them all in my schedule? Or actually, where will I find the money? If you are ever in Northampton, ask me for a list of recommendations! I've been around.
