Day 482: Gottino's Gorgonzola Dolce

Last week, I had the pleasure of going to Gottino, the brainchild of Jody Williams previously of Morandi. It is part wine bar, part small plates joint, part rustic resto, part an overall great place to meet friends, and as Williams calls it gastroteca. The menu is a mixture of cheeses, cured meats, small plates, and more...

If you go though, you must have their Gorgonzola dolce served in a small ramekin, it is placed on a dish with some honey and crisp crostini -- decadent, spicy, creamy, sumptuous and all around fabulous. Although traditionally I adore Gorgonzola Dolce, theirs is dialed up a notch in just the right sort of way, walking the most excellently fine line between sweet and savory, it is a must if you visit Gottino.

Also noteworthy is their homemade baccala served in a small glass pot, it is salty, savory and great on crostini with a glass of crisp white wine.

Overall a lovely place in a convenient neighborhood, it's worth the trip. Go early and enjoy their backyard on a day like today, you surely can't go wrong!
