Aperitivo - Akash

We continue our negroni hunt with a visit to Akash.

While the negroni is quite good the aperitivo plate is rather disappointing.

It's a large offering but the quality leaves a lot to desire - for the price I'd head around the corner to Hemingway where you get much better food and a top notch negroni for the same price.

The details:

Cena - Circolo del Vecchio Gusto #3

We're off for a late dinner at Circolo del Vecchio Gusto. There's a fixed price menu with white truffle option. In this family run spot, the dad is a trifolau which means you are getting the truffles straight from the source. Tonight there's one dish that is just crying out for white truffle so we've decided to treat ourselves.

For starters we decide to have a misto of antipasto
