Got to spend some quality time with my cousin, Christine, this past week in NYC.  All week long, we just roamed around the city, basking in the glorious, late summer sun.  On Friday, we weaved our way through the bustling Feast of San Gennaro street festival in Little Italy to find our table at Torrisi Italian Specialties for a splendid seven-course tasting menu lunch.  This was the best meal of my trip.  I loved every selection off the current menu, especially the grilled rice ball, linguini and fluke.  Next time, I hope I can go back for the twenty-course chef’s tasting menu dinner.  Now, that would be amazing!
