Reservations fill up fast, so I would strongly urge you to book a table as far in advance as possible. Greeshma and I ended up settling for the 5:45p time slot as it was the latest one available that Saturday.
|The one I was most excited about was the polpo: octopus, red chili flakes and smoked mozzarella|
|Yes ! Octopus pizza !|
|The second pizza we ordered was the lombarda: bitto cheese, mozzarella, cotechino sausage, and a beautiful baked egg front and center.|
We enjoyed our entrees and the warm, dimly lit, expansive but intimate atmosphere so much that we had to order desserts and prolong our visit further.
|I ordered the roasted banana puff pastry with burnt caramel gelato. Yes. More bananas! It's a condition !!|
|This was delicious as one would expect bananas wrapped in puff pastry would be. The extra crispy, caramelized burnt layers on top were my favorite (of course).|
After, Greeshma and I jumped into our pajama pants since our stomachs were bursting at the seams. An hour into watching the Joan Rivers documentary quickly facilitated digestion, and we found ourselves hungry. Again!
Time for some Amish whoopie pies, bought at the counter next to the Dutch Eating Place.
|Chocolate whoopie pie, promising the cream-filled life.|
|They make a fine pair.|
|Greeshma, in what looks like a Snuggie, but is not, enjoying some traditional whoopie pies. Whoop, whoop! Good night, y'all!|
