Lombardi’s Neighborhood Italian – Everett***
Everett Washington

We thought we would share some items off of Lombardi’s appetizers and small plate menu.

Roasted garlic and Olive Oil

Roasted garlic and Olive Oil*** what’s not to like?

Seared Ahi Tuna Carpaccio

Seared Ahi Tuna Carpaccio**** with a small bed of arugula and olive oil. Seared perfectly, my favorite.

Peel and Eat Shrimp

Peel and Eat Shrimp*** always fresh tasting

BBQ Ribs

BBQ Ribs*** nice presentation, wonderful flavors

Salmon spread

Salmon spread*** new to their menu. Creamy with a light back ground of lemon and was that a hint of horseradish? Served with toasted beget.
Time for some music

Sojen Cellars***
Everett, Washington

When the winery was founded, it was called Griffins Crossing. A cease-and-desist letter for trademark infringement from an attorney working for Willamette Valley Vineyards brand called Griffin Creek. So a name change was needed.
Leah Stillwell's
We were treated with Leah Stillwell's amazing Jazz talent backed by Ed Webber on piano and Larry Holloway on bass. We have not been disappointed by any of the talent playing at Sojen Cellars this summer.

Red E4 Red Blend** a nice wine, design for folks who love white wines, but want to enjoy a red. Light, black cherries, with a slight fizz, serve chilled.
