Forno Restaurant

I am posting this a few days early because I wrote something on FB about this restaurant. My husband and i drove to the City last night to take some books to a resale shop. We were starving and took a walk on Milwaukee Avenue, in search of a restaurant. The first one we came to was a tapas place. One look at the menu and we both realized the menu was too light for my husband. The hostess kindly directed us to a place a block away on Milwaukee Avenue.
It was a treat! I didn't realize how much I liked where we sat-right next to the open air kitchen. Chef Larry stopped by our table and chatted with us. Before we left, my husband and I were treated to a limoncello cocktail! And I didn't get a picture:(
But here is what I did get:

I had the chicken with arugula -so yum! Couldn't eat it all!
And here is a picture of one of their potato garnishes!

Parker's Breakfast

Parker sent me this picture of a breakfast he made for himself and his new wife, Katie. It's on a tortilla. It looks very good. Can you imagine what a goose egg would look like? And maybe some bacon crumbles??? Nice picture Park!
