As you may have noticed, I have been on a “blogcation.” I have a good excuse, which is that my husband and I decided that Pio Pio is, in fact, a reason to move and made an offer (which has been accepted!) on a great apartment on 95th and Broadway. As a result, every spare moment of my free time has been consumed by tracking down my elementary school report cards, dental records, and other minutiae required by the lender and the co-op board. I have found time to eat some delicious meals (no surprise there) and have lots to fill you in on when I come up for air.
To tide you over, I have provided pictures from a recent dinner at Casellula Cheese & Wine Café. I adore this spot – the expansive cheese menu is impressive and the individual pairings that accompany each cheese are thoughtfully selected and presented. My favorite pairing on this visit was white chocolate and mango fudge with some sort of creamy cheese (I forget which one) – I was skeptical of the fudge, but it was perfect with the cheese. The food menu is quite good, particularly the pig’s ass sandwich (pictured below). We polished off the meal with chocolate cake with fresh-from-the cow Meadowbrook Farm cream. Delicious!
