… has opened in the old Nizza la Bella space. Nice little menu. We’ll probably go next week. Anyone from here gone yet?

(Only remembered due to the use of schug under the croquettes.)

We had a lovely dinner last night. There were 5 of us.

We shared the Pistachio Falafel - excellent. They adjusted the order up to 5 pieces so we could all have one.
Pita and roasted eggplant - nice, nothing special, but fine.

Two of us then shared the Monterey Bay squid / cherry tomatoes / shishito peppers / ginger / avocado which was delicious, and then I had the Chicken Cordon Bleu / prosciutto / asiago / red potatoes / mustard / arugula, which was really good. My comment was “I don’t think I’ve seen this since the Velvet Turtle.” Other things ordered were the King Trumpet mushrooms/green curry (he loved it), Short Rib (he loved it), Bratwurst (she polished it off, but I don’t recall a comment) and the Gnocchi (I don’t’ recall a comment on that one). We also had a loaf of their bread and herbed butter - a small fluffy warm loaf which was delicious.

We shared the 3 desserts. They were ok, but I wouldn’t be in a big rush to order any of them again.

I had glasses of two different Italian reds - one at the bar awaiting the others, and one with my meal.

All of us said we’d return, and soon. Service was very pleasant.
