I am not sure why I waited so long to try this restaurant.
It was highly recommended by Roxlet on CH and more recently by
Primosprimos here at HO… It was on my short list to try
but for one reason or another I didn’t get there…until this week
I met a friend for dinner and we shared everything… I picked the app
she picked main, which was a pizza and a dessert.
I started with a really refreshing and delicious virgin mojito, I
mentioned to my server that I did not like overly sweet drinks
and she brought me a tiny pitcher of simple syrup on the side…this
alcohol free mojito was one of the best I’ve had
The appetizer was the Burrata … a salad of
creamy burrata, wood roasted sweet peppers, red onions, fresh parsley.
So very good, ingredients so fresh, they sang. Bright clean flavors, creamy burrata and
those peppers had just the perfect amount of crunch and smokiness. I’m so used to peppers being just
a bit too mushy…not these. I was thinking I might have liked just a smidge more acidity, but it
was most likely served properly and any addition may have detracted from what was going on with
We had the “Burrata” pizza too…Burrata
wild mushrooms, garlic, chili flake, parmigiano, basil, porcini oil.
We thought it was going to be mushy and oily when we saw it because
well, it looked that way… but within minutes we were sopping up that wetness
with the edges of crust…yum!!! Perfecto!!!
Dessert was molton chocolate cake…definitely would not have been my, first choice
I had only a couple of bites. This too was surprisingly good … made with quality chocolate and just
sweet enough…very good…with the gelato it too was perfect.
Service was rushed but friendly and efficient … it was dinner time on a Friday night and there was a line out the door by the time we left. It was pretty noisy in there as well but we had a two top against the window, table #19, I asked. It is a great spot if you want to talk and hear without strain…Going back for sure!
Not the greatest quality pics, just a few quick snaps…I didn’t want to be rude to my friend.
