Day 175 of 365…
Today I had an absolutely wonderful lunch. I was north of Vancouver in the City of Battle Ground and ate at Galeotti’s Restaurant for the first time. I’ll tell you, this will not be my last! The interior of Galeotti’s is very well done and the ambiance is just right. I’d call it casual elegant.
The lunch menu had a wonderful selection and I chose the Portobello Mushroom on focaccia with the Tomato Basil soup. The soup came out first and it was awesome. My friend I was with ordered the Caesar Salad to go with his Reuben. He informed me that the Caesar was one of the best he’s ever had. My Portobello Mushroom sandwich was so flavorful and good. The homemade focaccia melted in your mouth and I ate every bite.
Somehow my friend even managed to save room for dessert and decided on the Italian Cheese Cake (the secret to Italian Cheese Cake is they remove all the calories). ;) This decadent dessert came out and I couldn’t resist. I stole a little corner of my friends dessert. The crazy thing is… I don’t eat cheese cake! I would eat this Italian Cheese Cake though. I loved it!
In addition to serving some amazing food and dessert with a wonderful ambiance there is a little celebrity to this small town establishment. One Tree Hill’s Haley James Scott is played by Bethany Joy Galeotti who is married to Michael Galeotti. Michael is part of the band Enation with fellow actors Jonathan Jackson and Richard Lee Jackson who are also from Battle Ground. The Galeotti’s vision was to bring an excellent restaurant with a cozy family feel to Battle Ground, WA and I’d say they have certainly succeeded.
Galeotti’s Restaurant is located at 801 East Main Street, Battle Ground, WA and can be reached at 360-666-4877. You can also connect with Galeotti’s Restaurant on Facebook. I almost forgot to mention, Galeotti’s also has created an iPhone app! Search for Galeotti in the App Store and download it. You’ll find discounts, specials and all sorts of cool information.
