Mario Batali’s Lupa

Thanks to the generosity of friends, I am still able to experience the wonderful restaurants that inhabit New York City, even during these rough economic times.  My friend Lea took me to Mario Batali’s Lupa Osteria Romana last week when she came to visit.  It seemed like a quiet and sleepy Thursday noon hour in the East Village.  I loved that the menus had glossaries on the backs of them.  It was very helpful for ordering.  I got to taste the Dandelion Greens and the Broccoli Rabe with Ricotta.  Lea and I shared the Hanger Steak with Fingerlings and Asparagus, and the Spaghetti alla Carbonara.  Excellent, excellent, excellent.  I always hear in sermons at church that repetition is used for emphasis.  It is true in Chinese, as well as Hebrew and Greek!  The desserts were good, too.  We had the Tartuffo and the Panna Cotta.  It was my first time having Panna Cotta, which Lea had fallen in love with while traveling in Switzerland.  Served with cherries and ultra-smooth.  Delicious.  All of it was excellent.
