Last Sunday we decided to go to Tonno and try out the Sunday dinner special featuring an appetizer and an entree for a fixed price. GMG Jimmy had the eggplant appetizer and I had the shrimp bruschetta. They were each amazing and nearly a meal to themselves.
I chose chicken parmigiana and Jim ordered spaghetti with meatballs and sausage. We were not disappointed. Lovely evening out! Thanks Tonno for bringing back some of Jim’s childhood memories in an Italian household.
I got my annual Serenitee email which added a free entree AND dessert to my card in celebration of my October birthday; which coincided perfectly with my plan to have dinner at Minglewood over the weekend. Our server Jamie expertly delivered our drinks, appetizer, meals and dessert. It was a delightful experience, made even better by a nearly 40% reduction in our final bill! A wonderful date night for us. It’s a no brained….get your own Serenitee card today!

We decided to stop for dinner at the new Minglewood Harborside and check things out. As you have heard, a complete makeover of the inside was recently completed so we were curious. It was far too rainy and dreary to try the new outdoor seating so we had an inside table. The large bar area dominates the main room and it is something! Several people were seated at the bar watching the TVs and playing Trivia and having wings that were on special (Tuesday’s). There are outlets at the bar for customer convenience….how smart is that?
We ordered the Orange Chicken and Haddock Burrito which we enjoyed so much there were no leftovers.
And, as you see above, don’t forget your Serenitee card! (Have we mentioned the Serenitee card is free?) Thanks, Minglewood Harborside, we’ll be back soon to try the outdoor tables.
