Is Dirty Pierre's still decent? and a Forest Park report

Kerry | Jan 25, 2004 12:27 PM

just wondering about Pierre's :-)

Also, I took my finicky aunt to La Vigna and she was completely satisfied. She had a wonderful time chatting up the hostess (they talked about the restaurant in Queens that Lidia Bastianich used to have in Queens many years ago - my aunt had actually been there). The chef accommodated my aunt's requests for no pepper in the food! I, on the other hand, greatly enjoyed the squid-ink linguine in spicy tomato sauce with a bunch of jumbo shrimp.

Although it was freezing outside, we did walk down Metropolitan a bit. We got to enjoy the chocolate-covered marshmallows at Krauser's (sp?) (that place will be a great destination for Valentine's Day gifts). We also bought a ton of stuff at Dolce Vita bakery - they have an equal measure of French, Jewish and Italian pastries - sfogliatelle, napoleons, ruguluch, raspberry mousse, pignoli, eclairs, the list goes on and on...
