In search of great olive oil in NYC

Great dining in NYC

We spent the weekend in NYC and the highlight was dinner at ESCA, part of Mario Batali’s restaurant empire. Seafood dominates at ESCA, and the service was superb. Of course we discussed olive oil with our servers. Tuscans and Sicilians were served!(That’s not a mention of my roots!)

The wall niches were filled with wines and olive oils. Olio Verde had a prominent place as did Capezzana and Titone DOP Valli Trapanesi Biologica (Organic). You can make these fine selections at Olio2go.

Just to tantalize…our menu selections included…Polipo – Grilled octopus with giant corona beans and preserved sorrento lemon. …Insalatina Amara – Salad of wild and italian bitter greens with dandelion honey vinaigrette…Cavatelli with Clams….Pollo – Organic chicken with fregula, calabrese olives and lemon…Gelati  a selection of three with Balsamic and Honey as the highlight!
