The Trattoria in St James, NY

We had a delightful dinner at The Trattoria last night. Nothing short of perfection!!
It’s a small cozy, pleasant space that was filled on a Wednesday night, must be good.
Perfect professional, attractive servers. Simple, interesting menu. Tasty crusty bread and toppings for the bread: Olive oil, tapenade, ricotta spread, olives and peppers.
We ordered a salad to share: red beets, pistachios, arugula and goat cheese with a light subtle dressing
My friend had the haddock which was perfectly prepared. I had the eggplant parm. Generous portion with a tasty house made sauce.
For dessert we had the black and white crème brulee which was quite unusual in a good way.
It’s cash only and BYOB so hit the ATM and wine shop before you go.
