Last night I had the most amazing dinner with friends at La Tavola in Little Italy. The service was friendly and the food was fantastic. I had an incredibly fresh bruschetta appetizer and the gnocchi with pesto. But by far the best thing I tasted all night was the tomato sauce that several of my dining companions had with their pasta. It’s amazing how the simplest things can have the biggest wow factor when done exceptionally well. Everyone was raving about it and when I returned home I couldn’t stop thinking about how I might possibly recreate it.email. You can also follow me via RSS, Facebook and Twitter.
