After a few visits, I can recommend this Italian
restaurant on the pier (landfill?) at Piermont. It's
not the best place you'll ever eat, but it's pretty
good, consistent, friendly, and reasonably priced ($40
for dinner for two).
Last night, we had two dishes: fusilli with a marinara
sauce flavored with capers, olives, and eggplant, which
was good. It had a bit too much oil in the sauce, and
I think they browned the garlic too much, but it was
nice. (Badly cooked garlic often gives me nasty
indigestion, which didn't happen last night, so it
couldn't have been too bad.) We followed it with roast
veal in an interesting brown sauce with dates,
apricots, and mushrooms. A bit sweet for my taste, but
very well done.
Their pasta is always good, freshly made. They have a
small store round the back where they sell it.
