Good Times Always Mushroom Here in the Triangle

Monday, September 8th, 2014

CarpaccioDid you know that the month of September is National Mushroom Month? At Mia Francesca Trattoria in North Hills, our award winning kitchen, led by the reigning local Iron Chef, Zachary Van Gaasbeek places selected farm fresh mushrooms into several of our delicious gourmet Northern Italian meals.

Many guests start out their Tuscany Italian dining experience with our captivating Carpaccio appetizer, featuring thinly sliced sirloin using capers, tomatoes, mushrooms, lemon, olive oil, arugula, endive, radicchio, and Parmigiano. The name of this Italian dish has quite a history, coming about for the first time in Venice around 1950 during a special exhibition for the famous Venetian painter Vittore Carpaccio, who characteristically used red and white tones in his artwork.

Our very popular and palate pleasing Pollo e Pancetta presents pan-seared farm-fresh chicken breasts and roasted potatoes combined with a delicious pancetta mushroom Marsala sauce.

Our savory and unique Salmon Asparagi entrée features fresh grilled salmon, crab, wild mushrooms, asparagus, sundried tomatoes, white wine, garlic, balsamic, and lemon. Our fabulous Fettuccine con Mais offers fresh fettuccine pasta with fresh, local sweet corn, Prosciutto di Parma (dry cured ham), farm fresh mushrooms, cracked black pepper, and shaved Parmigiano Reggiano.

Mushrooms bring such wonderful flavor to a variety of dishes that everyone enjoys. One of our favorites is a Mia Francesca Trattoria classic suggestion that comes with fresh morel mushrooms. These special mushrooms have an intense, nutty, and earthy flavor that is absolutely heavenly when accompanied with our beef entrees. Our full-flavored Filetto con Spugnole is a special blend of grilled beef tenderloin, fresh morel mushrooms, spring onions, potatoes, grilled asparagus, and herb butter.

Because many varieties of mushrooms are cultivated all year round, we continue to place them in an array of new and delicious offerings that please every one of our visitors here in Midtown Raleigh. They are an excellent source of B vitamins and a good source of potassium. Finally, fresh mushrooms are a healthy, low-calorie food eaten cooked, raw, or served as a garnish to decorate a dish and platter. We love the value they bring to our Northern Italian presentations.

With our rustic atmosphere and our great service, Mia Francesca satisfies all of our guests with a true Italian experience. Bring family and friends to North Hills and enjoy the good times together. We are conveniently located, just 20 minutes from anywhere in the Triangle in North Hills, just off 440, adjacent to the landmark Renaissance hotel. If you want the freshest of ingredients, reasonable prices, and a comfortable and unique setting, stop in and visit us here in Midtown Raleigh. Let us take care of you!

The Best Chicken Dishes in the Triangle

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

Soak in the warm and sunny weather as you walk around North Hills in Midtown Raleigh. Along with the shopping boutiques, spa salons, and movie theaters, you will find Mia Francesca Trattoria. Our professional and award winning kitchen serves only the best Northern Italian fare found inChickem parm mft 6-2-14 the Triangle. While Italian restaurants are often most famous for pizza and pasta dishes, chicken is a wonderfully important main ingredient in delicious Italian cuisine.

Mia Francesca serves several scrumptious chicken entrees that our guests just love and enjoy. Our chicken comes fresh from Mar-Jac Farms, which has produced fresh “farm to table” chicken since 1954. These chickens have historically been grown to be both tasty and nutritious. This poultry is high in protein and a good source of several B vitamins. You will love the freshness and the high quality.

Our Pollo Arrosto alla Romano dinner features roasted chicken with white wine, garlic, chili flakes, and rosemary herb roasted potatoes. Our Pollo Diavola offering is tender chicken breasts with kalamata, capers, spicy Pomodoro sauce, and sautéed baby spinach. Our Pollo e Pancetta features fresh chicken breast in a pancetta mushroom Marsala sauce with roasted potatoes on the side.

Since chicken and pasta complement one another in delicious ways, be sure to try our Pollo salsa Bianca which combines luscious chicken breast, white wine, Alfredo cream sauce, and Parmigiano served over linguini or try our heavenly Pollo Piccata which blends delicious chicken breast, fresh garlic, white wine, capers, lemon, and linguini aglio e Olio.

Finally, one of our most popular dishes on the menu here in the Triangle is what many people love to call Chicken Parm! The Polo al Parmesan plate almost overflows with a wonderful combination of breaded chicken breast, tomato basil sauce, mozzarella, and parmesan laid over our authentic Linguini aglio e olio. Simply, Chicken Parmesan at its finest!

Now that we have you so hungry for classic Italian chicken entrees, we know a visit is planned; Mia Francesca is conveniently located in the Triangle, off the 440 Raleigh Beltline at Six Forks Road (Exit 8A and 8B), just minutes from everywhere in the Triangle. Come visit us any night of the week and try one of our incredible chicken dishes. Make reservations to dine with us today! The Chicken Parm is waiting!
