...I know, I know inauthentic,touristy etc.
But, I still have to go. I have made other suggestions, but these out-of-towners insist.
About 15 years ago, I went to Puglias, and it was fun to say the least. Anyone been recently? Will the wine mask the taste?
Otherwise, after a little google-fu, it appears Chowhounders say that Benito II and Lupo are the two least worst. Confirmations?
1. What else is acceptable?
2. Can I get away with faking a wierd stomach ailment that allows me to only eat at the Essex st. Dumpling Place?
