As many of you know son works for a fine Italian restaurant in the Scottsdale area here in the valley.
Because of Covid-19 all restaurants and bars have had to close except to offer take out or delivery service.
So naturally his restaurant had to follow the guidelines so they put together a take out menu and reduced their hours of operation. They closed Monday and are only open 3 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. the other days.
Son and the 2 other cooks currently are still employed. Thankfully!
We decided to order pick up from them today for dinner.
We got the pasta A special which was a choice of 2 pastas available plus a choice of 2 salads available or soup.
This is hubby's salad, Insalata Organiche. Came with dressing on the side.
This is my entree; gnocchi, which is not pronounced the way I would pronounce it. In Italian it is pronounced so different that I can't duplicate it here.
This is my caprese salad. Very tasty.
Hubby's pasta which was Paccatelli; also equally good.
And a nice touch, son had Chef pick out a bottle of wine to compliment our meal and son bought it for us!
Food was ready on time and delicious and kept fresh on the drive home. We ended up splitting the salads and enjoying our entrees.
It was good to support local small businesses like this. Chef and his wife truly appreciated our business. It was frightfully expensive, but the restaurant is to begin with, but we felt it was good to help them (and hopefully keep son gainfully employed during these times).
As budget allows we plan to support other local small restaurants and businesses weekly.
This too will pass!
