Once a year Asti does a 1 weekend Lobsterfest where they fly in Lobster fresh from Maine and cook various delicious Italian lobster dishes. I missed this event last year so when I got the email this year I jumped on it.
The menu was a 3 course dinner for 2 for about $100.
The dinner started with a caprese salad for each person. This dish is something I will never get tired of but I must say their tomatoes were delicious and I believe they make their mozzarella in house.
Then for the main course you can get corn risotto with lobster or spaghetti fra diavolo with lobster (fra diavolo is just a spice red sauce). We each ordered one so we could share. My favorite was the corn risotto the sweetness of the corn and creaminess of the risotto paired well with the lobster. It also had some other yummy fresh veggie in it like zucchini one of my favorites. The other pasta dish was my husbands favorite. They put a light sprinkle of breadcrumbs at the top that gave it a nice crunch to the bite but I found the spice was over powering the lobster a little and I would have preferred something with a little less kick.
For desert they had watermelon granita, which is basically fancy Italian ice, perfect for the Texas summer heat. The desert layered watermelon, shaved watermelon flavored ice, creme fraiche, and specs of mint. Which all paired nicely together into a cool and refreshing desert.
I hope to visit lobsterfest again next year and would recommend it to you all if you like Italian and lobster - it gets a phenomenal in my book!
