Dinner at Todd English’s Tuscany | Mohegan Sun

Recently we had the luxury of visiting Mohegan Sun and dining at Todd English’s Tuscany.

Mohegan Sun is the ultimate playground for adults; gambling, slots, bars and restaurants. We spent the night in an Earth Tower Suite, which is an addition since my last visit. It had great views and was perfect for our group of six.

12th Floor View, excuse the glare 😉

After some wandering of the casino, we made our way to Tuscany.

What made the experience at Tuscany was the fabulous company with our party of 6 and the great service we received from Jaime, our server, and the rest of Tuscany staff.

As soon as we were seated, the magical whipped ricotta, basil olive oil and olive tapenade with Focaccia arrived.

We started our dinner with a selection of Primi (i.e. first dish), keep in mind we’re a party of six as you stroll through the photos 😉

Spicy Veal Meatball – Porcini Mushrooms, Roasted Peppers, Parmesan Cream, Fresh Parmesan Cheese, Focaccia Toast

The meatballs weren’t too spicy, which was disappointing, but the parmesan cream made up for that 😋

Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail – Court Bouillon Poached, House Cocktail Sauce, Lemon Wedge

Calamari – Crispy Fried, Red Onion, Rocket, Cherry Peppers, Sides of Marinara & Chipotle Aioli
The crispy red onion and chipotle aioli was the highlight in this dish!

Tuscan Flatbread – Prosciutto, Rosemary-Fig Jam, Gorgonzola, Fontina

We should’ve stopped after the Primi, but the food kept coming and when you dine with chefs, that’s what happens 😉 The chefs requested the dishes with fresh pasta and one veal dish, which are featured below.

Rigatoni Bolognese – Housemade Pasta, Sweet Onions, Hatch Chili, Garlic Bread Crumbs

Fettuccini Carbonara – Guanciale, Sweet Peas, Forest Mushrooms, Mascarpone, Perfect Egg
This was delicious 😋

Veal Marsala- Broccoli Rabe, Roasted Garlic & Robiola Cheese Silk Potatoes

At this point, none of us are able to move 😉, but somehow we managed to finish a platter of desserts.

Fallen Chocolate Cake, Classic Tiramisu, Chocolate Mousse, Raspberry Panna Cotta, Vanilla Gelato
That golden banana was “orgasmic”, according to my Mom’s friend 😂

And of course no dining experience is complete without an after dinner drink.

Classic Espresso Martini

Classic Manhattan

I always love a great dining experience, thank you Tuscany, Jaime and those in the kitchen.

After all that food, we needed to walk off those calories and since we were at a casino, I decided to play some Roulette. Unfortunately, I did not win on my numbers 😟

We finished our evening at the bar in the mountain, Vista Lounge at Wombi Rock.

Till next time, Mohegan Sun, cheers 🥂
