Black Striped Lobster Ravioli

This time of the year, everyone is always looking for a little something "more." Not necessarily meaning that they're not getting enough... but more so that they're looking for something a little more "high end."

Our Christmas season is in full swing, and our weekends are packed with diners looking for quality steaks, pastas, and fish. Each year at this time, we notice the trend and have made it a tradition to feature a certain dish around the holidays.

Digging into our archives, we'll be serving black striped lobster raviolis. The black stripe on the ravioli derives from octopus ink being added to the dough, but don't fret... this will not affect flavor.

The raviolis are filled with a mixture of cheese and lobster for a sweet and creamy filling. We then toss it in a housemade saffron cream sauce. Saffron is the world's most expensive spice and has a mild earthy taste. The cream sauce creates a balance between sweet and savory. To finish off the dish, we top it with REAL broiled lobster meat and a sprinkling of red and green pepper confetti.

It's the time of the year to treat yourself. You broke the bank buying presents for friends and family, so why not add yourself to the list? We assure you that it's something special and unique - without putting a dent in your pocketbook!
