Inspired by tales from a friend's recent foodie trip to Tuscany, the Mister and I decided to head north last week to try Caffe' dei Fiori, a new Italian restaurant addition to the Upper East Side. Given that I heard all their pastas were homemade in house every day (nothing is better than fresh pasta!!) - I was excited to check out what this neighborhood joint had to offer.
The Mister and I started the meal off with the Prosciutto di Parma e Burrata ($25) - the thinly sliced prosciutto was super tender and excellently salty, which complemented well with the light and airy burrata. However, the standout was the warm Coccoli (a popular fried bread from Tuscany) that was accompanying the plate - paired with the prosciutto and burrata, it made one heck of starter.
