cul de sac is the name of this excellent italian restaurant


please click on photo to see rustic bread up close



at the piazza pasquino. authentic reasonably priced italian food. and this was just the appetizers! my dish, the closest to the lower left hand corner was an appetizer of seasonal vegetables. I am guessing the eggplant and peppers were stuffed with bread crumbs and cheese. whatever the case may be, it was delicious! luckily I dine with a sharing bunch so I got to taste the fresh salad and mozzarella with basil and tomato as well. there was also a side of baked ricotta (behind the bread basket) that when tasted, melted in your mouth. the word sublime comes to mind when I think back on this dining experience. as you might be able to tell, food is a big part of my world!

this post is a part of my world tuesday. to share a part of yours or just see more of others, please go here, thanks to klaus for hosting with his team of helpers, sandy, ivar, wren, fishing guy and louise.

My mom never once cooked Italian that I remember. When I married an Italian, he taught me so much, and I am SO glad!

French name for an Italian reataurant in NY, a little bizarre perhaps, but the food sounds great.

This looks delizioso! I always photograph the food when I'm in Italy too—at least I can look at it when I'm back here and living on Lean Cuisine (sigh).
