Just went to dinner tonight at Aliseo on Vanderbilt. The food was fantastic. Artisanal cheese platter. meat platter, stuffed figs with prosciutto, pork with herbs, eggplant with phyllo and some home made biscotti.
Had a great debate with Albano about restaurant improvements in the 'hood. Hard to belive the transformation in Prospect Heights. His pizza place is still not open. Looks like another couple of weeks.
Turns out he has an old Garland stove out back of his restaurant that used to live in my husband's old apartment. Bought it from the folks my hubby sold the apartment to. Small world. Told him if he ever wanted to get rid of it we would buy it back.
Visit this and other places in Prospect Heights to keep neighborhood places open!
BTW had a drink at Soda before dinner. What a cool bar. Food list was not much to rave about but the choice of beers on tap was great. Gotta love Yeungling - oldest brewery in North America.
