Last evening, Irving Schild – my videographer at KFWE 2016 – and yours truly, had dinner at my favorite dairy Italian restaurant in Manhattan: Va Bene (1589 2nd Ave, New York 10028 – Tel: 212.517.4448). The place, as usual, was mobbed when we got there around 7:00pm. We each had one dish and, at least for me, the portion was enough to satiate me.
Irving ordered Ravioli a la Giudia, this time it was covered in Alfredo Sauce (when I ordered it last time, it came in a tomato sauce), he asked to have some more grated Parmeggiano cheese over it. The Ravioli were filled with artichokes and cheese. He declared it absolutely delicious!
I had a freshly stretched chunk of Mozzarella cheese, topped with tomato and onion bathed with lemon juice and olive oil, it was a rare treat, indeed!
We each had a glass of the house Sauvignon Blanc, a perfect pairing!
