Caught a movie yesterday which let out @ 7pm. Finding ourselves in the area of FLW and Scottsdale road we weren't in the mood to tangle with the Friday Night Crowd.
We have been wanting to try New York's Best (under the new ownership!)
When we ariived the parking lot was quite full. Frank Sinatra music playing on the cute patio set the mood of the evening! Festive and fun!
The restaurants interior is dimly lit and adorable. I felt like I had been transported to back to the North End of Boston to my favorite Mom and Pop Red Sauce restaurant.
I started w/ a glass of chianti and we ordered a calamari inferno to share. This was a lightly fried calamari tossed in a spicy Marinara sauce. Along with the appetizer we were given a complimentary loaf of warm herbed focaccia and bowl of seasoned olive oil. I found myself dipping my bread in the marinara.
The evening was beautiful, the patio setting as the sun set couldn't have been more beautiful.
Our entrees came...The obligatory Spaghetti and meat sauce for Mike,with fresh grated parmesean. I had the Chicken Francese...with a side of rotelle tossed in olive oil and garlic. We cleaned our plates!
We saw many dishes pass by us that make us want to return for more: The Scicilian Pizza, The eggplant, The orceiette w/ homemade sausage. The fresh seaofod dishes, the Veal Chop, the Osso Bucco.
We will return! It may be this weekend!
