Even before this week’s federal and state guidelines for protection against COVID-19, we had already decided to close Bizzi’s week to week in order to protect both staff and customers. We really didn’t want to have to do this, obviously, but some things are more important than business/pleasure. This sucks for everyone, and it’s just generally a crappy time all around. Please, please be safe and wash your hands and all that jazz. More than anything, just make sure to take care of yourselves and each other.
We will let you know in plenty of time when we decide to reopen.
Thank you for understanding,
Sorry it took me a little longer to get these done and sent out, but here are the tasting notes for tonight’s Rhone Valley wine tasting at 7:00pm. They shipped a few incorrect bottles that were more pricey than I wanted to get, but it’s too late to change it now. So I guess you guys benefit. I guess what I’m saying is, you should come in for tonight’s tasting. Try to let me know if you’re coming, though, because I’m lower on quantity than I usually am.
See you, tonight.
It’s spring break! Woo. Granted, I’ll be spending it at work, but that’s still better than spending time at work AND school. But it also means that if I wanna celebrate, I have to do it here. Which, admittedly, isn’t much of a celebration…it’s just work. Well, whatever, far be it from me to complain (Veronika would disagree with that). Onward and upward.
The special for this week will be (we’re really trying to help people out with Lent, obviously) garlic encrusted red snapper topped with a lemon and white wine reduction and served with risotto and heirloom carrots. I’m not a huge fan of fish, but I’ve actually had each special we’ve had in the last few weeks and they’ve all been damn good. Take that for what you will.
Thursday’s wine tasting will be Rhone Valley wines (1 rose and 3 reds). V and I were drinking a bottle of cotes du rhone this weekend and it just really hit the spot, so I figured I had to do that for the tasting. If only to get another excuse to drink a bottle of Rhone wine. I’ll send out the notes tomorrow, but we should have 1 rose, 1 cotes du rhone village, 1 mourvedre blend and one really nice chateauneuf du pape. Thursday at 7:00pm.
Mom’s out of town so she doesn’t have anything to say, as far as I know.
See you, soon.
Hey, guys, just wanted to give you a look at the tasting notes for tomorrow’s Italian wine tasting at 7:00pm. If you plan on coming, let me know, because I don’t have a ton of it to pour. Should be excellent, as they’re all a little aged and in the right drinking window.
Sorry that I’m a little tardy to the party. I mean, I don’t really consider a few ours late to be tardy, but that may be why I am always getting in trouble for never being on time to anything….
The special this week is goat cheese and arugula-stuffed pork tenderloin with an apple chutney, served with fingerling potatoes and rainbow carrots.
The wine tasting on Thursday will be all Italian wines. I have them picked out, and I need to get the tasting notes done, but I believe we’ll do a Vino Noble di Montalcino, a Chianti, a Super Tuscan and one other one. I’ll get you the notes tomorrow.
If any of you would like to volunteer to do my homework for me, that would be great.
Firstly, and most importantly, the Bizzi’s phone number is changing. While we still have the original one up for a bit longer, you should call the new phone number. 817-304-0034. We’ve changed it on all our sites and everything, but I just want to give everyone a friendly reminder.
How goes it, what’s new, pleasantries etc. School beckons, so I don’t have any remaining brainpower (which is saying something!) to come up with something funny or clever. I’ll have to settle for informative.
The special this week is chilean seabass, topped with a garlic white wine reduction and served with heirloom carrots and risotto. We know that Lent has started, so we wanted to give people a fish option. We’ll keep doing a fish special until Lent is over, as well. So if you’re observing, but are tired of eating the same thing over and over, come see us.
The wine tasting this week will be a zinfandel tasting. At 7:00pm on Thursday, I will pour four different zinfandels from four different wineries. I even have the tasting notes done, already! I will go ahead and attach them, and hopefully they appeal to you.
We’ll see you, soon.
As promised, here are the wine tasting notes for tonight’s 7:00pm wine tasting. It’s the one we did on our Valentine’s Wine Dinner. It gives people who didn’t get a chance to come to our dinner, for whatever reason, the opportunity to enjoy the wine tasting we did. It’s always a good idea to do it, because you get better bang for buck on these tastings. Plus the wine is killer.
Hope to see you tonight
Sorry for being a day late to get this message out, school has not been kind to me. But you aren’t reading this to hear me complain (assuming you’re reading this at all and not just sending it straight to your spam filter). Or maybe you are, I don’t know anything anymore.
The special this week will be veal with fingerling potatoes and broccolini, topped with a thyme lemon butter. Basically food that’s tailor-made for sitting inside and getting warm while it pours rain outside.
The wine tasting this week will be the wine tasting we did on Valentine’s Day. We typically try to do the same tasting the following week as we did for our wine dinners, that way if anyone couldn’t make it for any particular reason (this time we booked up early and had to turn a lot of people away) they can still try the alcohol part of the night. I will post the notes for your perusal tonight or tomorrow. The tasting will be on Thursday at 7:00pm.
Also, Mom has a message: “So Bizzi’s Cellar Wine Club is meeting again! This Saturday, February 22, from 3-5 p.m., we will learn about Spain by tasting wines from all over their fair country. For those that aren’t Wine Club members, the cost is $20 per person. For everyone, the wines we taste will be available for sale after the class. Come learn about Spain in the most enjoyable way ever (unless you’re actually going there soon, and if so, congrats!) with cheese, charcuterie, breads, fruit, and even a little nibble of chocolate. If you are so inclined to attend, please let us know so we’ll have plenty of sharables for all — 817-281-9500.”
Lastly, and maybe most importantly, we are going to be switching our telephone number, for a variety of reasons. All you need to know is that the new Bizzi’s phone number will be 817-304-0034. I’m going to change it on google and all of our business pages, but I just wanted to give everyone early notice. We’ll continue to use the current number for a little while longer, but we are going to gradually shift it over.
Thanks for being fans of Bizzi’s.
So, obviously, this is going to be a very short and to the point message, as we are both incredibly busy this week and because we lack much information to convey to you.
On both Friday and Saturday, the 14th and 15th, we will be only open for our Valentine’s Day Wine Dinner, which is reservation only. Just as a heads-up for everyone. We will be open for regular service the rest of the week.
The special for this week will be a half-rack of lamb with a pesto cream sauce fingerling potatoes and heirloom carrots, back by popular demand.
There will be no wine tasting, because we are doing the whole enchilada (metaphorically) over the weekend.
See you, soon.
Don’t forget that we’re doing a wine tasting tonight at 7:00pm. I posted the tasting notes yesterday, but they’ll all be Spanish wines to pair nicely with this week’s special.
