Mushrooms at Moonstone

It happens. You finally go out for a fancy meal on the town and you freeze up — what to order? The special? The signature dish? Good God, what if someone at the table orders something better than what you're having? 

If you find yourself in a panic (or just disoriented by the view) at Moonstone Grill (100 Moonstone Beach Road, Trinidad), take a deep breath and order the wild mushroom risotto ($24). It's ridiculous. Nutty chunks of asparagus and earthy wild mushrooms in creamy arborio rice. It's a rustic comfort dish right up until some mycological hedonist in the kitchen tosses a small fistful of shaved black truffles on top and rings the whole plate with golden truffle oil. So rich and fragrant, so decadent — no need to look at passing servers to see what other diners are ordering. All must bow before your ordering prowess, especially if they want a bite.
