This is my card to Harvey! The template is from Florabella Actions Facebook page the download is under Exclusive. I’ve changed it up a little bit by adding the word Love in the Outlaw font and Happy Valentine’s Day in the Fiolex Girls font from Dafont.com.
The picture was taken last week when we went to dinner with our friends Pat and Carole Kearns, who live here, outside Pittsburgh, PA where we have been for the last three weeks while Harvey is working in New Stanton,PA.
If you watch PBS you may be familiar with Lidia Bastianich, who has a cooking show that features Italian food. I happened to go to her web page and saw that she had a restaurant in Pittsburgh. So we made arrangements to go with Pat and Carole. It is located in the Market District of Downtown Pittsburgh.
The fish market is right across the street from her restaurant.
I couldn’t resist taking this picture of the fish made out of lights!
The dining room, and I loved this huge chandelier made out of glass globes, it looks like a giant bunch of grapes.
This was the appetizer course. We asked the waiter all about this dish because it was delicious! It’s fried cheese with a potato and ground pork filling between another layer of fried cheese, called Frico di Montasio or Montasio Cheese Crisp.
Carole and I ordered Lidia’s Pasta Trio, which were three different kinds of pasta. I can’t tell you what the names of these pastas were, but the white colored one was my favorite! It was a potato and leek ravioli in a butter sauce.
Served tableside and refills of your favorites!
Pat had Zuppa di Pesce, a traditional Seafood Soup with Shrimps, Scallops, Mussels, Calamari, Fish Fillets and Octopus.
This is Harvey’s dinner! Bistecca 20-ounce Bone-in Ribeye Steak with a Rosemary Sea Salt Rub, Fried Potatoes, Herb Roasted Tomatoes.
When we finished with our dinners, Dessert! I was so busy enjoying all the wonderful flavors that I forgot to take a picture of the Tirramusu, but it was wonderful! The whole dinner was a great experience! Lidia has a restaurant in Kansas City and guess who is planning their birthday dinner there in July?
