Waterfront views, tall windows, and strands of lights overhead foster the Italian-villa ambience of this cozy eatery. Illustrate the natural magic of the food chain by stuffing stingy stomachs with stuffed artichokes, which are packed with gorgonzola, sun-dried tomato, and pine nuts, and then beer battered and fried ($8). A house-made lobster ravioli celebrates its liberation from the sea's fickle whims in a champagne lobster sauce dotted with shitake mushrooms ($24). Or, swiftly shush grumbling tummies with an 8 oz. char-grilled Angus filet mignon, served with potatoes, gruyere, and the golden trifecta of condiments—a triple-mustard cream sauce ($28). The full menu at It's A Matter Of Taste offers plenty of pasta, meat, and fish dishes, and an attentive wait staff ensures that each bite is as leisurely as a paddle-boat excursion in a lake of pudding.
It’s A Matter Of Taste
It’s A Matter Of Taste re-creates rustic Italian meals with a menu that showcases the nation’s three most prominent food groups: pasta, seafood, and steak. From the tender gnocchi to raviolis filled with chicken and veal, chefs fashion many of the pastas in-house to ensure fresh, authentic flavors. The upscale cuisine matches an elegant interior with wrought-iron accents and a patio overlooking Union Lake that opens the dining room to natural sunlight and tugboat calls.
