Emilia, telling a story...

"If the divine creator has taken pains to give us delicious and exquisite things to eat, the least we can do is prepare them well and serve them with ceremony."
Fernand Point

That is how I'd describe my dinner @ BIANCA in NYC. MmMmMmMmMm. I started with the most amazing artichoke appetizer, Carciofini; thin artichoke slices with Parmigiano in a lemon dressing ($8.50). For my entree I had Spagghetini al Pomodoro with tomato + basil ($9.50), and it was satisfying deep down into my very soul. Homemade macaroni with the most simple but perfect sauce with crushed tomatoes and fresh basil. The icing on the cake....freshly grated cheese on top. The restaurant itself was super cute and dainty. If you haven't already caught on through the past few years of food blogging - it's not just the food that makes for a great success, but it's almost as if food tastes better when the place you are eating it is special. There is nothing worse than a restaurant with no atmosphere. It was loud and cramped and cute and fabulous. Between the three of us we had: one bottle of Chianti, 2 appetizers, 3 entrees, and 3 espressos. The total: only $92!!

MmMm, I just wanted to drink the lemon dressing this artichoke salad was in.

Nicole's first bit of coffee in over a year. Thank goodness for her it was one of the most delicious cups of espresso around {aside from Milk and Roses of course!}.
