A D Blog Bestia Photo Update

This Doesn't really count as an update for two reasons.  One is that it is only pictures and captions. No, you are not on Pinterest.  And the second reason this is a cheat is that I wasn't there.  So this post is Dedicated to my niece, who had joined me last month (See the original October review below, "Bestia? Best Yeah!") and went back last week with a friend (Are Dining obsessions genetic Diseases?). As an ardent and loyal supporter of her Aunt Ilene Wendy, she took these photos as the Dishes and Drinks were Dropped at her table. She then sent them to me with full Descriptions.  This is my love letter to her.  Jul, you're the best.  I mean the best, yeah!

(Antipasti) Beef Meatballs. braised beet greens. soffritto. tomato.
(Piatti Piccoli)) Smoked Mackerel Crostino. burrata. tomato jam in foreground. Pancetta over greens in background.

Artichoke Soup

Roasted Marrow Bone. spinach gnocchetti. crispy breadcrumbs. aged balsamic in foreground and Porcini Pappardelle. hand-cut mushroom pasta. fava & mixed mushroom ragu. poached farm egg. fried spinach in back.

(Pizza) burrata. san marzano tomatoes. castelvetrano olives. oregano. fermented chilies

(To quote Julia) A concoction of ginger and scotch.

Jul,  you aced your first co-author credit.  These photos are worth thousands of words and at least another hundred Dining Dollars since surely I have to go back yet again.  Thanks, no really, thanks.  xo
