Apero

If you know me well you know I love Apero. I’ve taken my friends, my parents and of course fiancee. It was a stormy Sunday afternoon and fiancee and I both had the following Monday off. Feeling like a glass of wine and a bite to eat we headed up to Apero.

We arrive and are quickly greeted by Mo who suggests a lovely bottle of the Man o War Pinot Gris. It’s delicious and goes well with the goats’ cheese croquettes, Kamahi honey and warm marinated olives we order to begin. We’re also given a treat from the kitchen, such a nice touch.

Next up is the duck and pork terrine with prune. Delicious as always, I just wish I’d ordered more bread, we eventually do just that. The wine with the terrine is exceptional.

Mo is known for his wine knowledge so we get his help with our switch to red, he suggests a fantastic Italian number.

Next up is the pork sausage, pickles & mustard with the aforementioned bag of bread. Simply wonderful.

Apero hasn’t changed their menu much in the years they’ve been open and that I’ve been visiting, however, their daily specials are ALWAYS worth a look. Tonight was time to try the regularly changing souffle.

The apple and caramel souffle is incredible, like mind-blowingly incredible! So incredible that we ordered a second portion! The last time I did that was at Eleven Madison Park. The 15-minute wait is 100% worth it. The dessert wine was also excellent.

Needless to say, we left feeling happy, satisfied and a little tipsy. Would I go back? Absolutely, I’m still a huge fan of Apero and Sundays’ experience just confirms how wonderful they really are.
