A last minute decision to celebrate author Bud Santora's birthday and his newly released novel The Green Storm had me happily returning to my favorite neighborhood restaurant Cibo e Vino.
And we were immediately greeted by the beautiful and gracious manager and entrepreneur, Elena.
A chilly night before St. Patrick's Day warranted a round of heartwarming martinis.
The beauty of returning to such a wonderful establishment serving Northern Italian cuisine with Mediterranean influences means I get to try new and different items on the menu. Previously I've raved, and still do, about the flash-fried mushrooms with truffle oil, but tonight I had to try the Polenta Ricotta Beef Meatballs.
