Gradisca

After a late and absolute non-filling brunch at Tartine, we walked to and the Highline Park, got off where it ends, had coffees and teas and friendly arguments about the better chai latte between Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts, then took the 1 train to Christopher street to go to Fat Cat to play shuffle board; but the place being packed, we ended up playing Scrabble until 9:00 and then decided to go eat dinner. With 9 people and an equal number opinions and more arguments and discussions and cool (not warm, but not very cold either) vibes, we finally ended up at Gradisca.

The Italian place was rustically red with lights and brick walls and candles. Other than a cranky husband, it was a social evening with good food, wine and great desserts.

Their pastas are made in house.

The fresh mozzarella was a hit with the friends.

By the time we were ready to order desserts, they were out of their most popular tiramisu.
