blazing edible trails

as a self-professed foodie, there is nothing i love more than trying a new restaurant. last night my brother was in town for business and we seized the opportunity to do some sibling bonding at mario batali and joe bastianich's new place in westport: tarry lodge enoteca and pizzeria.

the low down
decor: dark wood shelving stocked with bottles of wine; amazing pendant lamps over the bar; tough to get a good look at the entire room because it was so crowded.
service: friendly, although a bit disorganized.
food: excellent, as was my glass of valpolicella. we split a salad, a pasta, and a pizza and it was the perfect amount of food.
impact on wallet: quite reasonable, even given the famous names attached.

overall, definitely a repeat - there is a clam pizza that i need to know about :)

tricolore salad with white bean dressing (must learn to make this dressing!)
pumpkin "fiore" with brown butter and sage
pizza with burrata, pancetta, and chili oil
how cute are these round business cards?
