Benzoni's offers taste of Italy
The Ferocious Foodies, after a long hiatus due to crap weather,
finally collected sweaters, gortex, waterproof substances, mittens, ear
muffs, and small warm mammals and headed into the snow. After a frigid
dawdle down Main Street, they finally saw the comforting signals of a
fire house. They had an important call to make: BENZONI's.
At first, they feared they did not have the correct location.
There were few clues that a quality food establishment existed within
the practically unmarked brick building. However, after cautiously entering,
they were comforted by a friendly hostess, warm fire place, and cheery
open kitchen. Throughout the spacious, multi-level restaurant, families
and Bowdoin students sat in wooden grottos. The foodies wanted to sit
back and stay a while.
The menu featured more than just famed pizza; salads, calzones,
and pastas diversified options. Pleased by overall low prices, the diners
chose house and greek salads, a "red white and green" calzone,
a broccoli, chicken, and cheese calzone, and a ridiculous pizza topped
with bushels of antipasti ingredients.
Salads sufficed; the Greek salads had high quality olives
and feta cheese, while the house salads (despite a predominance of iceberg
lettuce) were, well, house salads. Once the "leisurely" service
brought the main goods, the foodies smiled over the feast before them.
Everything looked freshly prepared and hot from the oven.
Such was Kerry's situation. Her advice: choose your calzone
The canolli, although consumed quickly, lives on in the
hearts and minds of those who have experienced it. The cookie like shell
surrounded a thick, icing like cream which Kerry believes tasted too much
like powdered sugar. The rest of the dining party shook their heads and
kept eating, stabbing Kerry with their poised forks.
Thus, the foodies left filled, fulfilled, and with cash
to spare. Everyone paid less than fifteen dollars per person for three
courses and drinks. In addition, Benzoni's has the best atmosphere of
any Brunswick restaurant the foodies have frequented. And dude, that's
saying a lot. Even more than the bushels of goods heaped upon Benzoni
