Scrumptious dinner last night out on the patio at Tavolo! Barbara started with chef’s burrata with arugula, melon, prosciutto, vincotto, and black pepper; my starter was frico (pan-fried grana Padang, potatoes, baby arugula, pickled red onions, with balsamic reduction). Unfortunately, as you’ll see in the photo below, someone seems to have eaten half of the frico before I could photograph it. Then, for mains, Barbara and I both had the wonderful bistecca au poivre, a peppercorn-crusted bavette with roasted potatoes, grilled asparagus, and cognac cream sauce. Takeout dessert was a lemon tart and a slice of flourless chocolate cake. Yum!
