  1. The Feast of San Gennaro 2017 NYC started today:" "The Feast of San Gennaro 2017 Guide" on timeout.com i love it. It's kitschy. So what. Lot of sausage and peppers, lots of cannoli, lots of vino, lots of pasta. In my case in past years lots of stomach aches from over eating. 😀 I think I'll go visit next year as I have to pass in 2017
  2. I rarely post in the Baltimore section, but I was surprised not to see Supano's with a write-up. It's a family-owned Rat Pack-themed Italian restuarant with gorgeous woodwork all over the interior, and pictures of Frankie and Dino and all of their buddies festooning the walls. A large projection screen in one corner dominates the dining room, with videos of Sinatra's concert events running non-stop. The menu also announces "Best Italian Restaurant in Baltimore" and "Best Steakhouse in Baltimore" by various sources, as well as many dishes such as "World's Best Eggplant Parmigiana" and "Baltimore's Best (this or that)"....superlatives aside, this is a restaurant with incredible decor and very good food. I had the shrimp cocktail and the "World's Best" Eggplant Parmigiana. The shrimp cocktail was pretty good, although not the "best" I've had. The eggplant was worthy of superlatives, but perhaps not "World's Best"....nonetheless, I would most definitely order that dish again. As you can imagine, the steaks and chops are also the stars of the show, and the pasta and other Italian selections look like they're from a competent kitchen. There's a whole lot of menu to be sampled here, and I will do my best every time I visit Baltimore.
  3. Have actually been a few times to Bagby as it was a favorite of my sister-in-law when she lived in the area. They have nice thin crust pizzas and are pretty quick on service. Decent variety of local beers as well. The other night we had the gourmet meat and gourmet vegetarian pizzas plus spinach and caesar salads. Salads are nice shareable portions. While wood fired, it is not neapolitan style, and does not make any pretenses to be. It has a more sturdy crust than what I have experienced with neapolitan, but is still very crispy without getting tough. Toppings are fairly generous, especially noticeable on the vegetarian with lots of artichokes. This would be ideal if you are in the area with kids and need a quick not too expensive bite to eat away form the chain restaurants.
  4. Richard Gorelick of The Baltimore Sun has announced the opening of By Degrees Cafe in Little Italy, one block away from Heavy Seas Alehouse.
  5. It is possible, however, to buy good product; for instance, I find it hard to top the Italian cheeses and other stuff they sell at DiPalo's. There's also Alleva Dairy, right down the block. And sometimes I'll sneak around to Parisi Bakery (on Mott, in what used to also be Little Italy), and buy a loaf or two of real old-time NYC Italian bread for $2.50 - not too crusty and nice and soft in the middle. Perfect for the reasonably priced sandwiches they also sell. The downside, for now and the next few years at least, is that Grand St. is torn up like nobody's business, as the water and sewer lines are being replaced. It's a mess. And for $10, those Roll-exes can't be beat.
  6. Oh my, what to say, what to say. We often give my Father in Law a hard time about despite really trying to pick good restaurants, ending up with real doozies. Such a night occurred this past weekend at La Mela. As we were walking up Mulberry MIL and me saw a cute restaurant next to our restaurant and were like, oh that must be it, nope. We were at the place next door, plastic table clothes, statues, tv with pictures of people who have eaten there, I swear 50 Cent was in that mix. Going in wearing our little black dresses we sat down hoping to be surprised with stellar food. We were not. My clams oreganata were gloppy. House salad was fine, with a nice light dressing. I don't really like calamari, but that was also good. My clam pasta was fine, although the garlic was overpowering, pasta was fine. Hubby's vodka penne was swimming in sauce and I could tell by the color it wasn't good. There was a musician that came around, he sang a song about a gigolo in front of my MIL that might have been the crowning moment and she sat there smiling, not moving a muscle. We left before the musician made his second round. I think I am the only person that had something remotely decent as an entree. We learned a valuable lesson and are passing it on, so you don't have to. My husband and his brother left some amusing foursquare tips, "try the door".
