Lunch @ Il Bacaro

We'd hoped to get here in time for the white truffles but alas we're too late. Oh well, you can't always have everything.

We start off with the bruschetta of the day

it's a mix of braised borlotti beans topped with Sicilian white anchovy. The anchovies are especially delicious, not overly salted and with a soft subtle taste and texture.

For starters:

Canadian Elk Prosciutto with slivers of green almond, Jerusalem artichoke chips, fresh fig and ricotta

This is very reminiscent in appearance to a goose prosciutto I enjoyed in Italy. You can see in this photo the slivers of green almond.
