On the home front, it’s an easy-peasy Icelandic leg of lamb, pan seared for a crust, and then in the oven for about 75 minutes studded with garlic, rosemary, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Served with white beans and spinach, and preceded by homemade salmon “spread.”
Outside, we’re talking the formidable square slices of Galleria Umberto, simply the best pizza in Boston, and bread from bakeries. See the theme? Baked. The city is baked.
On the horizon, there’s Perla, Esca, Rotisserie Georgette, a place TBD, Tribeca Grill, and Buco Alimentari. Just sayin’.
And even further we’re talking Tokyo, Kyoto, Kaga Onsen, and Karuizawa.
Meanwhile…back to the lamb.
