I had tragically broken a zipper that day and was feeling particularly, fragile. Thus I opted for no wine, a simple side of sauteed spinach and shared some char grilled mushrooms with L.
After placing our orders, we were given some bread which looked as if it would be simultaneously crusty and soft. I kept myself from having any but delighted in the accompanying olive oil, balsamic vinegar AND ollives! What a fantastic idea to add the olives!
As for our food, I enjoyed the char grilled mushrooms which was served with creamy ricotta, and accentuated by crunchy chunks of grilled foccacia. My sauteed spinach was garnished with parmesan and well seasoned, although a bit too oily.
