March 14-26 marks the return of chef Jason Dady's "Lobster Week" at his restaurants Tre Trattoria (4003
Broadway, 210-805-0333) and Tre Enoteca (555 W. Bitters Road, 210-496-0555), where San Antonians can enjoy prix-fixe dinner menus of three courses, gourmet lobster dishes and Nutella desserts all for $37.50 per person.
Tre Trattoria's Lobster Week dinner consists of a creamy lobster and Cognac bisque first course, followed by house-made casarecce pasta with lobster claw with San Marzano tomato puree, ricotta, spring pea and mint. The main entreé is a butter-poached lobster tail with charred rainbow carrots, caramelized cauliflower, basil and saffron-curry, and to finish off the entire experience, a dessert course of Tre Classico Nutella x3.
Slightly different, Tre Enoteca's Lobster Week Menu is comprised of a creamy lobster and brandy bisque first course, and pasta course with housemade fusilli and lobster claw, cherry tomato three ways and fresh basil to follow. Diners will enjoy a main entreé of butter-poached lobster with fingerling potato "coins," local zucchini, mint and Meyer lemon buerre blanc, and finally, a Tre Classico Nutella x3 dessert.
"Claws" to celebrate indeed.
