Taranta last night

Got seated upstairs by the window, really dug the decoration of the place. Started off with the PEI mussels which were the best mussels I have ever eaten: remarkably fresh, impeccably tender with no grit, sand, or the slightest hint of being overcooked. Just perfect, even if the accompanying caramelized shallot sauce was just a little too acidic. Really, just excellent. Then I had the braised lamb with yucca gnocchi with shaved parmesan...very good, nice chunks of lamb, little bit of heat to it, but nothing to write home about. After dinner was Modern's marzipian.

My cohorts had osso bucco (which looked fantastic), lobster ravioli, and macadamia crusted salmon with a blood orange reduction.

Overall the service was excellent and helpful, the food was dandy (and reasonably priced...my lamb was under $20), and even the wine by the glass was with it (Montepulciano d'Abruzzi).
