Carb- Loading Zone
At dusk, La Terrazza turns on its charm. Any trace of daytime buffets vanish. Blinds are lowered, lights are dimmed. Servers don suits and ties and set tables with fancier china. Guest count is limited to enhance intimacy. Come here to unabashedly carb load. (It’s always best to do it where it’s worth it!) First, the breadbasket. Marvel at the fresh-baked breads textural range, from crispy lavash and soft tomato focaccia to crusty seeded rolls. Spread roasted garlic on the bread. Or drizzle extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar onto the bread plate and dunk in the bread. I suggest all three: oil, vinegar, and then garlic. It’s called a win-win-win. The many housemade pastas change often, but the signature pappardelle with duck ragout stays. It’s like a Bolognese, but richer. I also like the hand-fashioned ravioli, stuffed with ricotta, onions and fresh spinach and strewn with walnuts. This pasta is a tightrope walker, finding the artful balance between rich and light.
