Lupa Osteria, one of Mario Battali's New York City restaurants was on the recent restaurant week list. It was a great opportunity to try the famed eatery. Mario Battali has a weekly column in the New York Times about what he's drinking. This ruby cocktail was our choice at lunch the other day. It was a signature Negroni with blood orange juice.
A delicious appetizer of olive oil cured tuna and bean salad.
The trout main course
The pork loin main course
Chocolate Tartuffo was my choice of dessert and I wasn't disappointed.
A pot of tea
The communal Table at Lupa
Until next year, dear friends when we again choose one of the wonderful New York City restaurants as an excuse to get together around a table and share a meal.
