Dinner In The City To Celebrate

A trip to Italy without leaving the states
My youngest daughter Jocelyn was away at her first sleep-away cheer camp and my oldest is just about to venture out into her college years. With having this little trip on my radar for a good while I decided to take my college girl out to celebrate this new chapter in her life and what better place to be than NYC.
We sat in the courtyard surrounded by many plants. The weather PERFECT and my heart happy as we enjoyed a beautiful meal together.

Just one glass
$15 a glass that is and honestly, I like my $9.99 bottle better.

The highlight of the meal was this appetizer and I'd go back again just for this.
Alley had the Gnocchetti al Pesto which she liked, but felt it was a little too heavy for her loving. (I must mention that maybe an hour prior to this we meandered our way into Soho, which ended up with us eating a very fancy cupcake... sitting on the side of the street watching the world go by). I went for the Agnolotti Ricotta e Spinaci, homemade pasta with spinach and buffalo ricotta, served with a basil and tomato sauce - and it was everything I imagined it to be; fresh ingredients in a sweet sauce with just enough on the plate to leave you wanting some more.
If you're looking for tasty organic ingredients and an atmosphere that's enchanting, well I think this restaurant would serve you well.
Next time I'm trying the Cavolfiore Palma Sautéed - cauliflower with pine nuts, currants, caramelized onion, and breadcrumbs. I can't wait!
One of the main reasons I picked an Italian place is because of Alley's love of this decadent dessert. My wish for my daughter is to live life well and enjoy the journey. I want so much for my daughter, like one day eating this dessert in Italy and following her dreams to wherever they may lead her. Now it's her turn.
