Recently, one of our writers, Megan, had the privilege of attending a dinner at the Tuscan Grille in Brookwood Village and she was amazed!
The manager was super nice as was the staff and very attentive. Come to find out, the manager and his wife have adopted 8 special needs children (which holds a special place in my heart as my son has Down Syndrome) which makes me love the Brio Tuscan Grille even more!
From Steaks, fresh fish and pasta – there is something for everyone. A average 2 course meal with run you between $40-$60 but it is a great value for the money. Also, they fact that the Brio Tuscan Grille is family friendly and has a children’s menu is a big plus for us working parents.
Each main entrée came with 1 side and you get your choice of: Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes, Roasted Tomato Basil Fettuccine, White Beans & Escarole Ragout, Fingerling Potatoes Brio, Crème Spinach and Kale, Sicilian Cauliflower, Maple Balsamic Brussels Sprouts and Haricot Bret & Roasted Peppers. According to Megan, it was hard to decide which side to get because they all look delicious.
The Lobster & Stuffed Ship was truly amazing and with the welcoming atmosphere, Brio Tuscan Grille is a place you would want to stay at all day long! Just the presentation of the dishes makes it a perfect place for a night out with family and friends!
Megan’s thoughts: All the food was delicious and very well presented. The flavor of the dishes was perfect and you could not have asked for a better staff!
