After my brother and sister in law left New York, I thought I should make a mini break from restaurants before my mom and sis arrive for Xmas and New Year…

The mini break literally lasted 3 days… Come on I am in New York, what should I do? stay home all day???? So I decided to join Lady Fleur and ma Rose Bon Bon for some shopping. After visiting a fur store, we off course ended up having lunch. This time we were at Bar Pitti. For the ones who don’t know this restaurant, it is located in West Village by Da Silvano. If you don’t know Da Silvano, well then open a gossip magazine to read which celebrity had lunch or dinner there or pass by to see the celebrities yourself and enjoy a delicious meal!!!

Anyway, back to Bar Pitti that serves Tuscan cuisine, and the menu is on a blackboards.

We had some appetizers such as “the Melanzane alla Parmigiana” (eggplants with cheese and mozzarella), some vegetables and a “Puntarelle Salad” (Catalonian chicory). Ok I am hungry again…
Then we shared a pesto pea risotto; I like risotto, I like peas, and the pesto sauce… yummy, but the combination of the three of them just didn’t work for me. I have to say the star dish for me , and I advise every single person to taste it; is “La Torta dellla Nonna”. It is a Tuscan custard pie with pine nuts and almonds, and it is just to die for…

The restaurant was as usual full. There were no celebrities this time (off course besides us ;) Lol) The crowd was composed of some regular customers and people living around looking for a delicious comfort food.

The service was good I guess. But then again how can you complain about Italians, even if they do something wrong, they smile, tell you some Italian words… and you forget why you were not happy.

Another successful lunch with my girls, delicious food and amazing company!!!!
