Torrisi Italian Specialties

Torrisi Italian Specialties

Ingredients for a 20-course meal to remember:

Deceitful olives stuffed with quail eggs.

Artificial cigarettes for old-world glamour.

The friendliest caviar service, perched atop buckwheat knishes.

A chance to use a Tiffany oyster fork to eat the playful chicken and cashew “oyster.”

Beets, refreshed and rejuvenated, as seen with dill pollen and crunchy brussels sprouts leaves.

A glorious reincarnation of summer’s darling gazpacho, with delightful slivers of mackerel.

There’s still more to come, but my stomach needs a break for now. Happy lunch hour…
