As soon as I dipped my fork into the steaming hot dish of Lobster & White Truffle Mac ‘N Cheese from BellaBrava, I knew I was in for a delectable treat. Made with Maine lobster, white truffle oil, Asiago cheese and buttery toasted bread crumbs, it is truly the Rolls Royce of mac ‘n cheese. The scent of buttery lobster and creamy Asiago cheese gave me chills of excitement as I prepared to taste this dish of decadence. Love at first bite, I can honestly say it is my number one favorite macaroni and cheese dish in Tampa Bay. I shamelessly ate every last morsel and had to restrain myself from licking the plate. I have been dreaming about this dish since my last visit and can’t wait to return.
The afternoon I enjoyed this exquisite dish was my first visit to what has now become my favorite restaurant in St. Pete. Located on the stunning Beach Drive, BellaBrava features New World Italian cuisine in a casual setting. Their menu is a beautiful tribute to old world flavor with new world flair and offers a variety of items such as pastas, antipasti, burgers and fabulous pizzas that are cooked to perfection in their Woodstone ovens. If you are in the area, be sure to stop by and enjoy some of St. Pete’s best cuisine in a beautiful setting.
