Somewhere between a chef-inspired multi-course meal and a home cooked supper lies Supper Bell. I have to totally admit – it is BETTER than the way I cook and as good as any chef presented meal – because the meals are amazing. Supper Bell is inspired by Chef Frank Bonanno who made me look like a real cook.  The menu changes weekly and features fresh vegetables and amazing entrees. We tried the Grilled Teres Major steak (so juicy, flavorful and delicious), grilled artichoke (yes, my kids like artichokes), kids broccoli penne (a deliciously creamy cheesy choice the kids wanted more), and topped it off with caramel fudge pecan cake. (OH MY….diet).
