Autumn Palate

It’s not that we don’t go out to eat much. It’s that we rarely find the experience blog-worthy. Neighborhood restaurants remain just okay. And. Citarella’s food is just too good.

Godspeed and good eating. ~ Carol Colitti Levine…

All of their stories and recipes can be found in Table’s Edge. …
