I love fresh and light tasting fare when it’s late and I’m tired. I was going to order the "home made Tagliatelle with truffle, scampli and fresh Porcini pasta," but changed my mind and went for the fish course instead. If there was one course I fell in love with on the first half of my Northern Italy mini-tour, this was it. It was light yet hearty and satisfying. The flavours were simple, but not muted; refreshing, yet bursting with character. For a reasonable 32 euro (don’t neglect the amuse, the ample bread basket, and the mignardise I was to receive – perhaps due to the tea I ordered), this course could easily feed two people.

An excellently pan fried butterflied sea bass filet (almost as wonderful as Charles’ from Mistral in Seattle!) were placed on two soft pillows of pached egg white meringues that mimicked the seafood’s briney flavour. But the surprising thing to these cloud like pedistals was the fact that they appeared to be poached and then their top surfaces lightly seared (or perhaps the tops were covered and slightly coloured by a hot plate or the hot fish?). The contrasting texture was delightful: springy, airy, chewy, dense yet bubbly. It was like a foam, with substance, filling, but not a filler. I was in love. The summer sauce appeared in the almost absent form of foam; similarly the spring bouquet was a handful of jullienned eggplant, zucchini, fennel, carrot and parsley. Either way, these latter two accompaniments were just that, and then some. Perfect, refreshing, delicious. I would order this course in a heartbeat. Actually, I would want to try more from Do Leoni’s menu next time, if ever, I have the chance to visit Venice again… and then I would ask for a reprise of this course.

My son, Dayton Blair is a guide on all the Tennessee lakes.. He fishes tournaments and is glad to show off the large mouth bass he caught on Percy Priest lake.
