Today was Holy Thursday. It was also, coincidentally, my Mom’s birthday. And, as the weather forecast had foretold, it was snowing intermittently, though the snow didn’t stick until temperatures dropped below freezing in the evening.
We celebrated my Mom’s birthday by having lunch at a really good local Italian restaurant, which I just noticed has a totally unfair one star review at one of those restaurant review sites. Just because the interior design is a bit dated (which it is), doesn’t mean that the food can’t be good. And unlike Amazon, that site doesn’t even allow you to downvote unhelpful reviews.
We ordered a big antipasto platter (which turned out to be three separate platters) to share among all the guests. Afterwards, I had penne with scampi in tomato garlic prosecco sauce, which was one of the daily specials. Other guests ordered pizza and the grilled liver, which is one of the restaurant’s specialties.
Anyway, here are some photos behind the cut:
