Le Zie

After hearing so many recommendations for Le Zie here I finally got around to trying it with my in-laws. The place was a pretty solid hit. I had some very tender(if a bit bland) octopus beneath a bed of mache. The main flavor kick of the dish was a base of chickpeas in a salty pesto. Very nice.

I had pappardele with wild boar and chestnuts , which was one of the many(unfortunately) recited specials. The boar wasn't that exciting but the hand rolled pasta was of perfect tenderness. The nuggets of chestnut were sweet treasures hidden between the sheets of pasta in a rich rosemary-hinted, wine sauce.

My wife's bass a la plancha was perfectly moist and flavorful as well.

Overall a good turn and the prices were good to match.

Enjoy!
