With the cooler months in front of us more diners will be moving indoors and restaurants are doing their best to keep to the Covid protocols. Pulling up to La Piccola Casa on Boston Post Road, Mamaroneck, the first thing you notice are the signs placed on the vintage James Fenimore Cooper House: 'Now Featuring HEPA Air Filtration and UV Lighting For Your Indoor Dining Safety.'
Went inside for a glass of wine and an order of his delicious Clams Oreganata. Walter Ricci, the amiable chef/proprietor, pointed out his protocols and showed me the UV Lighting boxes hanging in the front and rear dining rooms. When in operation the lights are invisible. These lights have been shown to eliminate Covid from airlines, but I have never seen them in use at a restaurant.
By the way, Ricci was freshening up the premises with a new coat of paint. He is currently offering a fall/winter promotion: Buy One Entrée, Get the Second Entrée Half Price, Monday thru Wednesday at lunch and dinner. Sounds good to me. Ricci's Italian-American cooking can be quite good! I like sitting in the bar room with its view of Harbor Island Park across Rt. 1. www.lapiccolacasarestaurant.com
