Dominick’s 5-O’Clock Meeting (aka Social Hour)
It was rather fortuitous that V proposed a visit this weekend to Dominick’s, as when I went to visit their website this afternoon for menu details I spied something new and quite glorious: happy hour.
Dominick’s ’5 O’Clock Meeting’ Social Hour(s)
When: Mon – Fri, 5-7pm
What: $4 Moretti Drafts, $6 Wine, $6-$8 Specialty Cocktails + Menu of bites & full entrees from $3-$18 each.
My last visit to Dominick’s was lovely. Cutesy patio, multiple glasses of wine from a slightly discounted wine flight menu (I feel like it was $18 for 3 ‘tastes’), and some delicious bites or cheese. But it was still pricey, and thus has kept me from returning for my post work noshing+boozing.
And this spot really classes up our standard expectations for happy hour food: Baked Ricotta w/ San Daniele Prosciutto and Roasted Sweet Peppers (yes please), Beef Carpaccio w/ Crispy Bone Marrow and Salsa Verde (yup that too), Oysters at just $1.50/ea! Okay, so ‘rice balls’ doesn’t sound quite a special as the rest, but we are sure they are delicious too (don’t classy spots usually call this arancini?) And while normally we try to stick to vino for daily imbibing, the menu of deluxe classic cocktails has us intrigued Penicillin (ala Comme Ca?), Moscow Mules, Tom Collins, daily Marg specials? We could easily sling a few of those back and still manage the walk home with a still-full wallet.
I look forward to many romantical happy hours with V (and possibly the husband, if he is so inclined) on the twinkly patio in our future.
