Blood orange

20 Apr

Although Best Thing I Ever Ate suggested Osteria for its pizza, the highlight of this meal was the dessert — even the Boyfriend had to agree, and that’s really saying something.
Lombarda – baked egg, bitto cheese, mozzarella, and cotechino sausage
Delicious though it fell short of Pulino’s circa Nate Appleman.  Still, it was the second best artisan pizza I’ve had.

Pork shank osso bucco with saffron rice crema
Funny story — knowing how I am about texture, the Boyfriend decided to serve my first forkful of marrow without fair warning.  Don’t get me wrong, it was very tasty, but it felt on my tongue sent chills up my spine.  He finally gave me bread buttered with marrow.

The perfect marriage: tart blood orange, light cookie-like pie, and bittersweet dark chocolate.  Love, love, love!


I don’t want nobody, baby!

28 Feb

Oscar winners and who-wore-what’s could wait.
Sunday afternoon was spent walking around Downtown and singing aloud to (read: embarrassing) the Boyfriend with a rendition of the 70’s hit “If I Can’t Have You”.  Needless to say, I was very happy and silly.
Eventually we found ourselves at Pulino’s for dinner.  I must admit, I was slightly disappointed, since we’ve visited pre-Nate Appleman’s split with the pizzeria and had a different experience, all-over crisp pizza.  The food was still great — I just care a lot about texture, so don’t let that alone sway your decision to try Pulino’s!  We also had semolina gnocchi with oxtail sugo, which was really good.  There was a hint of ricotta, and though I’m not a fan of the cheese, it still tasted great in the gnocchi.
So what exactly did I wear on my fun day Sunday?
Ralph Lauren Black Label slim-fit cable cashmere; Rock & Republic; Marc by Marc Jacobs FW 2003 black marlene wool jacket; Dior FW 2010 over-the-knee biker boots.
