I hope you do not hate me after this post.
Why? Because I am posting pictures of Beretta, yet again. Last time, I promise.
Half of the Lisbon house went out to eat a midday meal on Saturday and we had bad luck choosing a restaurant. Everything good was either closed because of the awkward timing or way too far away. Luckily, our go-to Beretta welcomed us with open arms.
Their arugula & fennel salad was a great starter and paved the way for our feast to come.
Just expect a picture of Taylor at least once a week now. She makes an awesome dining companion. I do not know if it is our shared love of arugula or because she is always down to leave at a minute’s notice to grab Easy Breezy with me at 10:00 pm. More than once…wish I was kidding.
Can we take a minute and soak up this meat antipasti? From the top to the bottom: prosciutto, lard, salami, mortadella and hot coppa. We do not have to talk about the pickled salad goin’ on in the upper left hand corner because I did not like that. At all.
I love this picture because it is an actual candid. I can only imagine the dirty thoughts that ran through my head when the waitress brought the plate out.
Hint: It involved a crostini and meatgasm in every bite. A calorie less than divine.
I found my table lighting hot spot for these broccolini dosed in garlic, olive oil and peppers. It is hard to believe a dish so simple can taste so good.
I know gnocchi is a cult favorite, but who has had it pan seared? It is life changing and I want to recreate something similar soon. This dish was made with pancetta and porcini mushrooms.
Lastly, what Beretta is known for, their thin crust pizza.
On top is a broccoli rage, pancetta, tomato & mozzarella special and the bottom has hot salmi, coppa, tomato, provolone & diavolicchio peppers.
This week is bitter sweet for me, I have to work and study a lot but will reward myself with a mini trip down to LA for the weekend. 🙂 Details to follow.
What are your plans for the long weekend? (Forget the fact that I am asking on a Wednesday).
