|My new favorite I-talian restau|
I ordered the veal escalope, and had to choose between three sauces : lemon, mozzarella, and butter/sage. Fat kid cried out: "Ask for all three in little ramekins!" but I couldn't embarrass my friend. The lemon sauce was picked, and oven roasted potatoes were served. I looked around at other tables, and saw bright green pesto sauce on homemade gnocchi. Mozzarella and tomatoes glistening under olive oil and dressed with fresh basil leaves. Fried anchovies with homemade mayonnaise. I wanted it ALL. Even before being served my meal, I knew that this place was going to be one worth going back to.
The veal arrived and it was glorious. Thin, golden brown veal cooked to perfection, with a lemon brown butter sauce that helped the meat melt in my mouth. The potatoes were blanketed in fresh rosemary and mixed with whole cloves of roasted garlic. The sweet garlic was so mild and didn't leave me with garlic breath (something I am sure Fab appreciated later in the day). I polished that veal off as if I hadn't eaten in days.
