Choosing the healthy meal while eating out is not my forte. Cries for indulgence echo throughout my whole being. Chicken, vegetable, or white fish dishes are dull, make-at-home on a Wednesday meals. So I once thought. Apparently, when healthy foods are cooked perfectly and served with a side of savory risotto, they ARE indulgences! The Merluzzo al forno includes a lemon and herb crusted haddock filet, parmesan spinach risotto and Italian string beans. I say includes because each was delicious and full-flavored. The haddock filet was cooked to flaky perfection and topped with a very crunchy topping with strong lemon and pepper notes. The thin green beans were bright green, drizzled with olive oil, and topped with chopped tomatoes. A complimentary amount of olive oil and tomatoes I must add; the green beans were not drowning and the plate was not greasy with excess oil. The risotto was very savory with a think sauce and just a little bit of spinach. I was extremely impressed with everything I ate at Mare e Monti, from the bread and olive oil, to the TWO different pie slices I ordered to-go from the dessert platter. I highly recommend Mare E Monti Trattoria and encourage everyone to brave the awkward street parking and indulge!
