I stumbled upon Capri in NYC last week when I had a nice dinner at Marcony, an Italian restaurant I had not heard of until last week, when I was luckily enough to be invited to a dinner there. It is a beautiful two floor space, serving some good Italian fare.
Start with a refreshing and great key lime martini to elevate your mood!
A complimentary fried ravioli was crunchy and tasty.
Fried zucchini flowers were also tasty, light, and perfect.
A special eggplant rollatini was absolutely wonderful! I wanted to roll around with these guys all night long.
Tricolor gnocchi with sundried tomatoes, pesto, and almond sauce was pleasant and fine.
A special lobster fra diavolo had some sweet and fresh hunks of lobster in it, which was nice. The sauce was not spicy though, and it should have been, if it was truly fra diavolo. It was much sweeter than normal. But, all the fresh seafood did the dish justice. I just would not call it "fra diavolo".
Chilean sea bass in a Vinsanto sauce with zucchini, onions, and tomatoes, was sweet, buttery, and executed perfectly. A really simple and nice fish preparation.
A fine rendition of tiramisu and a chocolate cake that oozed chocolate goodness was a splendid ending to an admirable meal. You will lick your plate clean as my dining companion did!
