Family Dinner

Visited a tiny restaurant and wine bar on the Upper West Side recently called Vai and I thought it was a gem. They score high marks overall for tasty food, good knowledge of the menu and attentiveness. Also, the staff was very accommodating to our rather large party.

An appetizer of Rosted Clams with Andouille, Chili and Garlic Confit had just the right amount of spice and was full of flavor:

An entree of Papparedelle with Veal Sausage Ragout and Parmesean was both traditional and comforting. Did I mention it was succulent also? :-)

The Grilled Rib Porkchop with Carmelized Onion and Agra Dolce Sauce was a real standout. Super delicious:

Not only did we get to dine on good eats but we got to hear all about my big brother's recently trip to the Amalfi Coast. Ahhhh, heaven.

  1. They also had an interesting wine list. Small list, but very well priced. The 2001 Capoverso Montepulciano definitely punched above its weight.
