34 White Street, New York, NY
On a recent trip downtown to catch The Seeing Place Theater's production of Cloud 9 at the Access Theater I was challenged to find a nice restaurant to have appetizers and drinks at before the show.
Located in what is called TriBeCa in the city (for those of you who don't know, TriBeCa = TRIangle BElow CAnal street) I discovered that just a block away from the Access Theater, which is located at 380 Broadway, was a very inviting restaurant called Petrarca Cucina e Vino.

Arriving on the early side, we were seated at a quiet table with a great view of the restaurant and beyond.
We ordered glasses of pinot grigio as a basket of fresh bread appeared. Note: the bread was gorgeous. The crust was so crunchy delicious that I immediately discarded my low carb diet and inhaled more than my share. But I was smart enough to leave some for what was to follow.
