Review: The Polo Grille

Before going to see The Hangover Part 2 at the Deerfield Regal Cinemas (which I thought was hilarious, by the way) my friend and I decided to grab a bite to eat at The Polo Grille, which is located very close to the theater. We've been there a couple times before and have never been disappointed, so we were excited to go back.

As an appetizer, I always go with my old faithful choice, which is the oven baked goat cheese with roasted tomato sauce. It's served with crispy flatbread and it is absolutely DELICIOUS! This is one of my favorite appetizers of all time. If you like goat cheese, you've got to try this!!

My friend decided to go with the Polo Citrus Salad. It was topped with golden raisins, oranges, apples, dried cranberries, gorgonzola cheese, peanut brittle (yes, you read that right!) and citrus vinaigrette. I'm not a huge fan of fresh fruit on salads, so this would not be something I'd order, but she really enjoyed it. I did try a bite with the citrus vinaigrette, and it was very light and refreshing. And the peanut brittle was awesome! The only problem was that the lettuce was wilted and a few pieces were soggy. That was disappointing.

I also ordered a salad but without all the fresh fruit. Mine came with spiced pecans, gorgonzola cheese, tomatoes, grilled chicken and balsamic vinaigrette. Luckily my salad was made with a spring mix, which was much better lettuce than the Citrus Salad. It was crisp and fresh.

Polo Grille is an excellent choice, especially if you're in the Deerfield/Mason area. They have a lot of different options including seafood entrees, pasta dishes, sandwiches, pizzas (which I've tried before and really enjoyed), salads, etc.
