Sharon invited Jeana and Larry to the house for a gin and tonic [Harris Gin, Mediterrean Tonic Water and Grapefruit]. Afterwards, the four of us went to dinner at Piatti. We all worked together at the Farm Credit Banks in the 1980s and 1990s. Although there was some disturbing news, it was great to catch up.
For an antipasti, we split Fritto misto [jumbo prawns, lemon, blue lake beans, cauliflower, calabrian chili aïoli]. For entrees, I had Saffron spaghetti [prawns, garlic, corn, spicy pickled peppers, basil, parsley, white wine], while Sharon had Ravioli [spinach, ricotta, lemon cream, citrus gremolata]. Larry ordered a nice bottle of Mancini 2021 vermentino di gallura.
