Drago

As I have mentioned before, we have been very frequent diners at Drago and the restaurant is our go-to neighborhood Italian restaurant. 

The room at Drago is civilized. This is not scene dining. You can actually talk to your dining companion.

The standard amuse – Arancini and Bruscetta with tomatoes and shaved parmesan – My son loves Drago’s Arancini and had 4 last night!

Carpaccio di Tonno con Insalatina di Granghio 

“Ahi tuna Carpaccio, Dungeness crab salad, Lemongrass-ginger dressing” – very nice and light 

 

drago-beef

Carpaccio di Bue, Insalata Riccia, Pere, Parmigiano e Tartufo 

“Beef Carpaccio, Summer Truffles, Pears and Parmesan cheese Salad”

Never did taste this, although I have had it in the past and it is always good.

Costata Di Bue “Piemontese” Alle Erbe, Tortino Di Funghi e Patate

“Pan Roasted Piedmontese Beef Rib Eye, Aromatized with Herb Pesto, Potato Mushroom Tart”

Also didn’t taste this (my son is not a good sharer), but he ate every bit of the meat, but have to work on him re the veggies.

Coniglio all’Agrodolce

“Pan Roasted Rabbit in a Sweet and Sour Sauce” – Excellent

Italian Pastries for dessert (not pictured)

And then Marolo de Barolo, Grappa and Chamomile – I have never had this before, but my son and Silvio absolutely insisted I try it. Marolo is made by distilling leftover Barolo solids. While the grappa is aging in French oak barrels, fresh, local, chamomile is added. Incredible stuff.
