CureScrubBlackberry Scrub beverage from Justin Severino‘s Cure restaurant, located in the Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh.

Last year, I enjoyed my birthday dinner at Cure so much, I decided to continue on the tradition to this year’s birthday.

I saved my one and only visit to Cure for this very birthday dinner. If you are not familiar with Justin Severino’s (Owner and Executive Chef) Cure restaurant, I encourage you to read my post from last year: (Last Year’s Birthday Dinner at Cure). It truly was a magical experience at Cure, being surrounded by pig memorabilia, art by Tugboat Printshop, rustic wood tables, chairs and fabulous food!

CureSmallSalumi

Course #1: Small Salumi plate! I must say, Cure makes THE best charcuterie in the ‘burgh (Crested Duck is a very, VERY close second). If you read my birthday dinner from last year, all of the same fixings are on this plate, and are as wonderful as ever. 😉

 

CureFocaccia

In-between course: homemade focaccia bread with cheese, olives and lardo! The focaccia bread came VERY close to being as good a the focaccia  bread at The Hyeholde (which has the best tasting focaccia bread I’ve ever had in my entire life), and spreading the lardo with the cheese and olives on the bread transported me to heaven (even if it was just for a few minutes).

 

CureMushroomSoupCourse #2: mushroom soup! Not as good as the butternut squash soup that my Mom ordered at last year’s dinner, but this was still THE best mushroom soup I’ve ever had! The presentation was incredible (the bowl came out with just a few ingredients, and then the waiter poured the soup into the bowl).

 

CureSouffle

Course #3: dark chocolate soufflé cake with pistachio butter. Cloud Nine chocolate paradise. ❤
