Ascari

Last night (after we’d also had a pretty bad ass meal at White Lily earlier in the day) we had dinner at Ascari Enoteca.

We had cocktails (a Paper Plane and a Manhattan), then arancini cacio e pepe (rice balls / pecorino cheese / pepper / fonduta) and broccolini fritti (lightly battered broccolini / pecorino cheese / lemon zest), along with glasses of 2016 Heidi Schrock Welschriesling/Furmint and 2015 Podere Il Saliceto ‘Falistra’ Lambrusco.

For our mains we had spaghetti alla carbonara (guanciale / roast squash / pecorino cheese / egg yolk / cracked black pepper) and risotto (braised lamb / roasted tomatoes / wild mustard purée / grilled wild onions) with a bottle of 2014 Le Boncie ‘Le Trame’ Sangiovese. Dessert was their cannoli (stewed apples / mascarpone / caramel / crumble) and a top off of espresso.
