Christmas Morandi


Morandi. Perfectly decorated for Christmas. Look at Danielle! She told me afterwards that her face was so sad because she was thinking: "Jesus don't love me".

So she decided to attack the bread with Monster Hands.

We split three appetizers, and two pasta dishes

Carpaccio di manzo
thinly sliced raw beef with arugula & parmesan
the carpaccio was my favorite appetizer

Prosciutto di Parma con frutta di stagione
thinly sliced prosciutto di Parma & seasonal fruit
love that the seasonal fruit was apples. As it should be!

Mozzarella di bufala e zucca
buffalo mozzarella with roasted winter squash

Tagliatelle alla bolognese
egg pasta with classic meat sauce

Pici al limone
hand-rolled spaghetti with lemon & parmesan
This one was a suggestion of our Waiter. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm

Brown sugar cake, spiced gelato and cranberries in cranberry goo. I mopped the plate clean of goo eventually.
Seasonal "fritters" for Danielle the imp, they were piping hot and pumpkin flavored! Two sauces: chocolate-y and the other butterscotch-y.
Gastrognomes!
