Early Morning at L'altro
I was at the restaurant a few months ago for the first time and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the dishes, and this time I am equally impressed. The pasta he showed us in the kitchen earlier was turned into another classic dish, with chunks of lobsters and cherry tomatoes. The "liquid pizza" was an interesting creation with a racy acidic tomato cream soup with dollops of mozarella cheese, anchovies and pickled onions, surrounded by bits of dark bread crumbs - I love this playful presentation. I also enjoyed the perfect risotto done Milanese style, infused with the golden color from the saffron and served with almost-melt-in-your-mouth veal shank.
