Had the most delicious meal at Babbo last night......

AimeeD | Feb 23, 2005 09:50 AM

Took my husband to Babbo for his birthday last night.
Here's what we had:

Antipasti:
Proscuitto San Daniele- Very good, served with bread and pomegranete seeds.
Braised Fennel Salad- Wow, this was outstanding. Served with goat cheese croutons and pears.

Primi:
Mint Love Letters- This is an interesting dish with very bold flavors (spicy lamb, mint, and peas). My husband loved it.
Beef Cheek Raviolis- This was our favorite dish of the evening. Very rich- only wish there had been more truffles.

Secondi:
Spicy 2-minute Calimari- This was just okay, although the calimari was extremely tender.
Grilled Lamb Chops- Didn't expect this dish to be so big. It was 6 double lamb chops served over sunchokes, cremini mushrooms, and sauteed onions. Very delicious, but we were almost too full to finish it.

Dessert:
Chocolate cake with Hazelnut Gelato- yum

For wine, we had a great bottle of Gattinara Riserva Desillani.

All in all, an amazing dining experience. Can't wait to back to try new things. But make sure you make your reservations in advance, even Gweneth Paltrow was turned away at the door last night.
