The evening of March 31, Max and I planned to meet for dinner at La Calcina where we have dinner reservations at 7:30.
I’m early and I’m waiting in that lovely room.
This man will be our waiter.
I zoomed in on the table setting in the next room.
It helps to have reservations as we were ushered to a corner table by the window.
Max ordered a Caesar salad and I ordered this salad which was artichokes from the nearby island of Sant’Erasmo which is known for it’s market gardens. The artichokes are topped with shavings of parmigiano reggiano. They called the red berries “ribes” and I researched and they are related to currants and gooseberries.
I also had pasta busara this time with salmon.
The view from the window was extremely distracting being it was my last night in the city of my dreams.
We finished our meal with dessert…sorry, no pictures. He ordered strawberries and cream and I had gelato…limone.
As we walked to the vaporetto the new moon was hovering over the Molino Stucky complex.
