Dear Cavatelli and Ravioli,
The mood is set. Checkerboard tablecloth, flickering candle stuck into empty bottle of red wine vinegar, baguette slices resting beatifically in the basket. You reach for the butter, but suddenly a violinist enters with a flourish and a trill, his mustache twirled to perfection, his glasses slightly fogged from warming up next to the steaming sauce pans in the kitchen. You leave the butter alone. You smell the veal ragu simmering from your place at the head of the table. Your whole family is here, and you are happy. An old woman totters out from behind a wallpapered scene of boats on a canal — there are so many boats. The woman is carrying a plate of meatballs, each seemingly as large as the head of her beloved Giorgio, that rapscallion. The bowl of meatballs is placed before you. Is there enough for everyone? There is.
As you probably suspected, we are playing a show at La Piazzeta this Friday, February 22. They serve a gorgeous gnocchi, and we heard the Vitello Cognac would make your Auntie Carmela proud as peach punch. The show starts at 9:30pm, and also features music from Dead Stars and Miniboone. La Piazzeta is located at 442 Graham Ave in Brooklyn, NY. Make your reservation now >>>
