It’s been that kind of week, I shouldn’t have to tell you that, you know. You know exactly what I’m talking about, don’t pretend. Don’t pretend you don’t know, because you do, of course you do.
After a surfeit of first rate meals, in this order–Il Buco Alimentari, Estela, Rubirosa, Gabriel Kreuther (bar), Second Avenue–we headed over to Eataly and scored fish, lots of fish, from halibut to sole, as well as killer vegetables, pasta at a buck a box (three per customer), and crazy good olive bread at $2.80. Oh, and a couple of small amounts of stuffed pasta, like agnolotti al plin and little ravioli.
Night after night, I toiled over a hot stove. Fish, fish, and more fish.
Tonight it’s Icelandic rib chops with fresh black truffles. Eataly sells these truffles, and for $15, that’s right, $15, you get three meals for three people. Whoa!
