A friend invited me to lunch downtown. I had to tell her “yes, but…” and explained I was off the sauce along with bread, pasta, rice and dessert. She wanted to go to Maccheroni- Republic with over 12 hand made pasta dishes on the menu.
“What do you suggest?” she asked.
I want to see her, to visit and catch up. We both love restaurants and occasionally treat ourselves to linger over a long lunch and giggle our way through a menu from top to bottom.
I think I will find a menu that works and suggest we meet there. Save the pasta for Valentine’s Day.
