~ Timpano: Italian Chophouse ~

Last weekend, my beautiful girlfriends and I headed out for a little fancy dinner at Timpano. Now, I am not a big Italian fan, but this place is pretty good. It is a little fancy place so feel free to dress up. We did. :D

Now, the food. If you go to Timpano and don't order Black Skillet Roasted Mussels, you may as well not have gone there. It's so good! I usually dislike black mussels (I am a New Zealand green mussel kind of girl...), but this is so good. Nice and buttery, but not too heavy. It is a little bit on the salty side, but just a little bit.

Look at the oil splattering onto my camera lens. Good thing it was only the Canon.

As a chophouse, I actually am not impressed with their steak. I have had it a few times, but it was just mediocre for me.

Now, this was really, really, really good. This is the BBQ Short Rib Flat Bread. OMG, it was great!!! It's very flavorful and the pork is very tender.

I actually had the Seafood Cioppino. It was good, but not as good as the flat bread.

Another thing that's really good? Surprisingly, it was the mac and cheese with truffles. It's a side. I was so surprised because I usually don't care for mac and cheese. But, it's very different from Kraft stuff. Definitely will get more of that next time.

We were too full to eat dessert this time, but I usually do get a little something. They have the cutest cheesecake lollipops and yummy tiramisu shots. So, yeah, check out Timpano. It's on Rockville Pike, where Barnes and Noble and Target is.

I love girls night out! It's so much fun to dress up a little bit and just relax. Enjoy good food and good eye candy. Yeah, I have some hot friends!
