A whirlwind car shopping experience, a couple of airplanes, a daylong meeting/ scout and we were lucky enough to slide into a patio booth at Terroni -- "traditional Southern Italian food" -- for a late afternoon lunch. I'm not sure how traditional it is (or whether that's always a virtue) but the crust on James' "mangiabbun" pizza was thin and crisp with a smattering of fresh spicy sausage, mozzarella and rapini. Might have to try that topping at home -- think I will cook the rapini just a little more on my version. To start, "tagliere mezzo e mezzo" a tasty sampler of prosciutto, salame, cheeses, roasted pears, breadsticks, and honey drenched walnuts.
