BATTERSBY on Smith and Degraw
This is an Anella cousin(greenpoint) and from this first taste, I want it to be my kissin' cousin. Warm, intimate and friendly. Bread that is foccacia like but more home-baked and spongy...it sops up the ricotta spread with a crumpet-crusty-like lust. The scallops appear in a butter colored broth and they are naturally sweet and perfectly cooked...great wine list and beers on tap. Next time i will try the chestnut brandy after the tasting menu...so much to look forward to in the new year.
