Omnivore - Three courses of crispy-creamy

Birthday lunch at La Pietra Cucina


  • Frank Miller

Four of us celebrated my friend Brad’s birthday at La Pietra Cucina Friday afternoon. All of us ordered the same entrée special (right), veal scallopini topped with two cubes of the best crispy, creamy polenta I recall eating in Atlanta. (Also: speck and peanuts.)

This followed a shared starter of even crisipier, creamier arancini. Dessert was two layers of creamy (goat) cheesecake between crispy ginger cookies.

By the way, Bruce Logue, who was rumored to be leaving the restaurant, was still very much on duty. His wife should be delivering their first child very soon.
