Lòcal and “Locàl… a pun for good food!
Passed the Greek orthodox church of St.George, you come across “Local”, run by the brothers Benedetta and Luca Follin. A few key words can describe this restaurant, strictly connected to the Lagoon and the islands where crops are grown: seasonal and local produce used for creative dishes, combined with some simple and quite traditional ones, such as…. Octopus with green beans and ginger potatoes, Eel with cherry plum and corn meal, [...]
Glass Delis at Ca' Pesaro Museum
The Museum of Oriental Art housed in Ca’ Pesaro is pleased to display the works of Fujiko Enami and Ushio Konishi, two Japanese glass masters based in a fishing town near Tokyo. The exhibit is also a tribute to the use of Murrina and the “glass strands” called “millefiori” in Murano, used on the island since the Renaissance age. These techniques are applied to works of Japanese style and traditions, like blown pots for tea ceremony, tea [...]
"Bone Robe 2919", "good stuff" indeed!
Campo Santa Margherita is not only known for its nightlife, but also for a new way of experiencing food… I am very pleased to review “Bone Robe”, a place where you can have lunch and dinner, drink a beer paired with appetizers, take away food, buy some packed beans or polenta. It is not a trattoria, just a few tall tables with stools on the left and on the right a long counter with sweet and salted small muffins, homemade chips, fish appetizers on polenta [...]
Venice meets Sicily: two gourmet islands
Far from fearing any comparison with other Italian food styles, our city welcomes the new wine bar “Bacarretto” , run by Marco Accardi, born and raised in Palermo. The name is a combination between “Bacaro” and “carretto”, referring to the colorful Sicilian carts dragged by a donkey decorated with ribbons, strings… the osteria stands just passed the church of Santa Maria Mater Domini, on the street corner. Tables are [...]
Charming Osteria near the Frari church
Here is a brand new place for my private wine tastings...... its name is Osteria del Cason, a few steps away for the Frari church, one of the highlights of Venice. You won't be disappointed, the owner Riccardo will welcome you and do his best to make you feel at ease. The interior is traditional, as much as the food style and the appetizers. Don't expect a large menu, dishes are accurately selected according to the season and the local taste: home made Gnocchi with meat sauce, [...]
Fish and Corn meal…. to go!
In the last years true Venetians have missed the family based "fritoini", a deep fry place where poople could grab a cone-shaped bunch of fried fish, combined with a slice of yellow corn meal.... a few weeks ago Alvise Tiozzo and his father opened "Acqua & Mais", water and corn, at Campiello dei Meloni, a few steps away from the Rialto market. Based on the idea of street food, this place has neither chairs no tables, just a long ledge behing a large glass windows, with all [...]
A new Osteria in the Cannaregio district!
In early 20th cent. there were about 1290 Osterie -wine bars- in Venice, one for every 124 ihnabitants...... today much fewer than that, but some of them still keep the original mood and quality, such as the "Osteria alla Frasca", recently re-opened by Bruno Natural. This young owner and certified Sommelier had worked at many of the best restaurants in the city, and finally decided to start his own business, a small, pretty and old-style place dating from 1903 with [...]
A Vegetarian and Vegan restaurant in Venice
Vegetarians and vegans are not welcome in Venice, and it's hard for them to find a good place. For this reason I'd like to point out La Zucca, located in Santa Croce district, near the Campo San Giacomo de l'Orio. Most of the tables are indoor, totally furnished in wooden planks, with a view on a quiet canal where gondolas pass by from time to time. La Zucca offers also meat and fish based dishes, however the selection of vegetable ones is wide and above all, so tasty! Seasonal [...]
