This week I am in New York for a Spring Break/College tour trip. New York is always a good excuse to try some new restaurants and see everything the city has to offer. To that end I will be posting a brief blog each day.
Last night, we ventured out to Brooklyn for an Italian dinner. I can’t imagine being in New York and not eating Italian but wanted the opportunity to try a different restaurant. We went to La Nonna, on a Yelp recommendation. It did not disappoint!
When we arrived we were greeted and sat immediately. Alex, our waiter, came over the table and let us know that there were quite a few specials tonight. As he described them, each one sounded better than the last. We settled on starting with a Margherita Pizza, then a fresh Caesar Salad. The pizza was good, but the Caesar salad was out of this world. I could tell the dressing was fresh made and what I loved was that you could really taste the olive oil, not just the garlic or anchovy. It will inspire me to re-work my own Caesar dressing.
To be clear I am not reviewing this restaurant but if I were, I would tell you it is worth the trip across the bridge. This is a family owned restaurant. Anna Morena, the owner came by our table and introduced herself. She was so excited that we had chosen her restaurant via Yelp and gave us a little snippet of her and her husband’s story. I feel like I have a friend in Brooklyn now. I apologize for no pictures. However, the food was so good it was devoured before I remembered.
Today we are off to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, Book of Mormon and some more good food, and I promise pictures. See you later!
