Omnivore - Dining well in the dark

La Tavola celebrates its 10th anniversary

We checked out La Tavola Trattoria a few nights ago, since they are celebrating their 10th anniversary and were offering a $29 prix-fixe menu. It's a three-course selection of the restaurant's all-time favorites. But ended up ordering my favorites from the regular menu — this beet salad and seafood stew.

Wayne did order from the special menu — carpaccio, fregola with Littleneck clams and bread pudding for dessert.

We sat in a corner of the restaurant so dark we couldn't read the menu or see what we were eating in detail, much less snap decent pics. But the meal was great.

The special lasts a couple days more, ending June 27. In fairness, you should do the math on the special menu because, unless you're dying for dessert, you'll likely spend less ordering a la carte.
