One of our favorite places to eat while in the Netherlands was La Place which is a chain of restaurants that offers a variety of fresh food stations inside a department store. So when we saw Casa Tua Cucina inside of Saks in the Brickell City Centre we had to give it a try. It was the same concept of fresh food stations where you can choose what you want to eat and have it cooked for you or you can take it home to cook it.
I was in awe as I walked in that I couldn’t help myself so I just walked around and checked out all the food stations. From fresh breads to an awesome salad bar. You can choose from the grilled meats station or from a variety of pasta dished then to finish off your meal there are the most scrumptious desserts that look too good to eat. But that didn’t stop us. I especially loved the pizza station and the adorable cat shaped pizza we got for Rian. Who didn’t eat it because he wasn’t feeling well but Neve didn’t hesitate she ate pizza, polenta and tried to get at the desserts. It’s so refreshing to see her enjoy food unlike Rian who is more fussy about what he eats.
As we ordered our food from the various stations our table was set with plates, water and silverware. Once you’ve ordered your given a number and your food is brought out to your table. We started we a charcuterie plate and drinks then the grilled steak, salmon, veggies, polenta, and pizza showed up. We were so hungry that I didn’t get any pictures of the food but I can guarantee that it tasted great. It was a great way to spend Friday afternoon eating, drinking and laughing with the most important people in my life.
Happy Hump Day!
