the grill at Galileo

Just adding my two cents to the chorus. Went today and had the chicken and a cannoli. The chicken was alright - a good sandwich for 5 bucks, but nothing that I would crave (such as Palena's chicken, or a great burger). The meat was a little dry, and none of the condiments added any great flavor. On the other hand, I was the only person eating chicken. I don't do pig, but everyone else there was eating ribs or pork shoulder and appeared to be having a rocking time.

The cannoli was AMAZING!!!! Better than Termini Bros. in Philly, Mike's or Modern in Boston, and most importantly, Veneiro's or Ferrara in Manhattan. Plain shell, obviously homemade, stuffed with chocolate marscapone on one side and vanilla on the other. The vanilla had little flacks of vanilla in it and a super clean taste, while the chocolate was as rich and luscious as any other chocolate dessert I've eaten. Very impressive. Does anyone know about their pastry chef?

Also, on a side note - as anyone taking their cooking classes? I may purchase one as a gift to myself, but only if it is geared to serious homecooks, that have a pretty good grounding and understanding in the basics. If its just show and tell, I'll buy a few more cookbooks instead.

Thanks!!!
