No, it was just enough, the sauce amplifying the accompanying spinach, the cheese not masking flavors, and the two asparagus spears a nice lagniappe.

We chose to share strawberry, chocolate, and hazelnut mousse cubes ($7) from the teeming dessert tray. In that setting, we had to retain our dignity, so we refrained from shouting "Olé!"
