That was great. Had a pre-lunch nosh of truly incredible pate campagna and a pate canard. Wonderful cheeses too.
Lucky you!! I always think I should offer Canadians rides from the airport in exchange for maple syrup!
How bizarre re Esca, that sounds awful. I went to a reading where the Red Farm founder spoke, gosh he was intolerable. On that alone, I’m not sure I’ll visit.
I too was unimpressed by MV Taverna. Still haven’t made it to Cafe Altro Paradiso or Beatrice Inn but they are definitely high on my list.
My mom told me she had a great meal at Casey Lane’s (of Venice’s Tasting Kitchen) Manhattan resto - Casa Apicii
