Restaurant ReviewsConti's Little Flower Ristorante
136 Farnsworth Ave., Bordentown, NJ

I try and eat right, eat a lot of fish and poultry, have salad a few nights a week, watch the intake of carbs, and rarely indulge in junk/fast food.

But it's still kind of hard to justify the orgy of oil, cheese and red meat that was my visit to Conti's, which is tucked away on a shop-lined street. Being a little starved for red meat, I was glad to hear that one of the evening's specials was a grilled steak.

But not just any grilled steak. A Grilled 18 oz. Sirloin Stuffed with Mushrooms, Peppers and Onions and Topped with a Mushroom Cheese Sauce. Wha?!

After indulging in a ridiculously over-the-top appetizer of Cheese-Topped Garlic Bread (itself swimming in a decadent cheese sauce), my sirloin arrived, hanging over the platter and, as described, stuffed and topped with everything that I loved.

I should be ashamed to admit that I finished the whole thing. And that I topped it off with a piece of Tiarmisu.

I should also be able to tell you what everybody else at the table had, but I went into such a meat frenzy that I could barely remember my name that night. Good wine list, too.

EPILOGUE: In May of 2006 I was informed that Conti's is no longer in business.
