Can't imagine many more enjoyable ways to spend a gorgeous early summer evening than on the Basi Italia patio. I did just that last night, and it was lovely. We enjoyed many plates of beautiful and delicious food over a bottle of pinot noir. We watched the sun set and the tiny outdoor space light up under strands of white twinkle lights. Trust me, there's not a more romantic spot in the city. And I wasn't even on a date.
Here's a look at our meal:
Zucchini Pronto, with toasted almonds and pecorino cheese. Our other appetizer, pictured at top, was the fantastic Pistachio Honey Flatbread topped with crispy prosciutto.
Lobster & shrimp canneloni topped with roasted asparagus and zucchini spears
Sweet pea risotto with crab and spinach
