I have only had the pleasure of dining at Sparrow one time but what a time it was. The food was delicious and you could tell the chefs cared about what they were sending out. I had the Proscuitto Wrapped Pork Tenderloin and not only was it perfectly cooked and seasoned but it was also artistically displayed on the plate. Almost too pretty to eat but I was glad I did.
