EOLO – New York

EOLO – visiting an old friend in a new place.  It was during my past trip to New York early this December that I made contact with an old friend from Capri, Italy.  I met Daniele while staying at Capri Palace where he was a sommelier at Restaurant L’Olivo.  Several years had passed since we last saw each other, but a quick call or text always kept us in touch.  We made every effort to never loose contact and always planned to meet up in the US or Italy to catch up over wine and food.  I was ecstatic to learn that E0l0 had become his playground as the head sommelier.  When Daniele extended an invite for lunch at Eolo I couldn’t wait to dive in as I was sure the wine and food would be excellent.  True to form – – it was like being back in Italy as aromas of truffle oil and fresh steaming hot focaccia bread was brought to the table.  A I nursed a glass of Grillo, the rest was left in the hands of my friend Daniele and wow what a terrific time we had as the food and wine flowed.  My only regret is that I could not make it last forever as there was a major dinner on the horizon.  Here’s lunch as I so desperately needed to save room for dinner.
