The same night I headed to Big Gay Ice Cream's new shop, Donny and I walked over to Porsena for some dinner. Everything on the menu seems delicious, but I finally went for the Gnocchetti con le pulezze: gnocchetti with mustard greens, garlic, anchovy, chili, and breadcrumbs. I've recently been sauteing breadcrumbs before adding them to pasta, so it was exciting to see this happening at a restaurant. And I loved this plate of pasta! You don't usually see spicy Italian pasta and it was refreshing, in a way, having a new take on a known dish. Similar to having savory ice cream. For a pricey $18 a bowl, it better be plate-licking delicious.
Made Fresh Daily! There you find great Porto Rico coffee, an airy shop with plenty of seats, and delicious sandwiches. I got a huge slice of a frittata that came with a significant salad and hunk of focaccia, and it kept me going until late in the evening. If you find yourself down there looking for a bite, head here!
I'm going to go rest my wrists now.
