Basically, Always Just Great, or, What I Ate: Basi Italia
Tender, ground Veal Ravioli
Seared Ahi Tuna special, with roasted red pepper ratatouille
Bone-in Veal Strip special
Creamy mousse with raspberry swirl
Chocolate "S'More" cheesecake with homemade bruleed marshmallow for the birthday boy
Last week, I joined some family members for a birthday celebration at Basi, and once again, it was a terrific time. I mean really, what's not to love about Basi Italia? OK, I'll answer my own dumb question: nothing!
Because from the freshness to the pretty plating and the sexy flavors, the food reliably rocks. Plus the charming place kinda makes it like an amusing game to be dining in its NYC-type cramped setting--i.e. getting to know your "neighbors" is unavoidable (no matter, they're probably almost as cool as you).
See you at Basi soon!
