last night after blogshop, james and i went to torrisi, for our good bye dinner in new york. i had read about it here and added it to my to do list in ny. we went early and were lucky to get a table, as they don’t accept reservations. during the day its a deli sandwich spot, and at night they have a set menu that changes every day. it’s my kind of place, brick walls decorated with italian products, a cosy atmosphere, fancy but informal.
the best part? dinner itself – a home made warm mozzarela, followed by three other starters to share, my favourite were the sea scallops with fermented rabe. For pasta we had gnocchi with katz pastrami with a great mustardy flavour, and as a main dish a very light striped bass with pickled tomatoes. From the selection of pastries we had for desert…I am still thinking of the chocolate mint patties…yumm!
I’ve been meaning to try this place forever! It has always looked so delicious to me!! Your photos around your site are gorgeous btw:)
Thanks Emily, i took a chance, after blogshop on sunday. You have to go!!
