A short restaurant review (my first)

by Sheldon Brown

Recently I had lunch with Breezy Gledhill at the Mad Rose Italian Mediterranean Restaurant located in Downtown.

We were served by owner Kelly Tyburski who was very pleasant and accommodating.

It has a very nicely designed interior with an enclosed patio facing Main and a small sit down bar.

We were first served excellent warm rolls.

Breezy had a salad that she added shrimp to. I thought that it was a little small but Breezy said that it was excellent.

I had Milano (salmon in lemon cream sauce with cherry tomatoes and maui). It was also excellent with large chunks of salmon. I drank water because I am determined to start drinking water which I very seldom do.

The Mad Rose offers a globe-trotting mix of dishes representing such Mediterranean countries as Spain, France, Argentina, Greece and, of course, Italy! They serve all of the usual Italian dishes, salads, hot antipasti, choice of 11 pastas dishes, house specialties ,entrees (Cioppino-Lasgna) all moderately priced for the good food and ambience.

I will certainly eat there again.
