off the bone
Went over to the Turks' last night for dinner. (Russ and Michele are Mark's best friends from Boston College, who now live about 3 minutes away). We celebrated the first farmer's market tomatoes, berries, and fiddlehead ferns, and the mushroom risotto was perfect for the sudden dip in temperature (it's mid-MAY and I pulled out a black turtleneck sweater). But the gold star goes to what is now officially Russ' signature dish: luscious, silky, fine-tuned osso buco. Bravo!
Frankly, I'm a little hung over today, but it was well worth it...
Note to Mark: don't forget to check out the storefront next to Fjord's that the Turks mentioned.
