As some of you may know, my husband and I are moving in a few weeks to Washington DC (more to come on this). So I went to Uva with one of my very best girlfriends to celebrate our time together in NYC. When you go to Uva, either sit at a casual seat in the bar area, for people watching and intimate seating, or if it's nice weather request to sit in the back garden.
We shared a bottle of Malbec (great medium bodied wine to have with a varied menu), goat cheese and black pepper bruschette (so creamy and soft), the Antipasto Vegetariano for two (um, pickled carrots?! sweet and tangy? yes please!), and we topped it off with a delish Girella al Cioccolato and Jameson on the rocks (the Jameson and Hazelnut together are brillant!) Of course we spent much of the time talking and laughing. It's so nice to be able to catch up with my best friend while enjoying top notch food and drink in a relaxed, elegant environment. If that isn't the perfect little get-a-way, I don't know what is!
