Chipotle Chicken & Bacon Panini – Brio Tuscan Grill

When a gal is shopping for her very first wedding dress at International Mall in Tampa, she needs four things: Best friends, comfortable shoes, a glass of wine, and a sandwich. We took a well deserved break at Brio. The Mezza Panini & Insalata was perfection on this fateful shopping trip. I went with the chopped salad. The Panini came with charred tomato, carmelized onions, spicy chipotle mayonnaise, Fontina, Boursin and Applewood bacon with housemade chips. The spicy flavors really popped in my mouth. Anything with bacon automatically gets a thumbs up. It was also grilled to perfectly crunchy perfection. Perhaps I am just remembering this sandy fondly; as I shoved it in my mouth and chased it with a crisp Riesling, I had a moment of clarity and chose my dress. To look fabulous in June, maybe I should lay off the sandwiches.
