On Friday night, Chris and I headed to bruschetteria for a quick bite to eat. bruschetteria is known for their sandwiches, wines, and…bruschetta! The place is tiny and right next door to teany, the tea shop that was once owned by Moby. The place is very cute and there is only enough space for 20 or so people:

I ordered a pressed sandwich with arugula, turkey, avacado, and tomato and Chris ordered four pieces of bruschetta with tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and olive oil. My sandwich was really well made (there’s only one guy behind the counter making sandwiches and boy did he take his time). The turkey was really good (honey roasted) and the bread was crunchy on the outside, but soft and chewy on the inside (it tasted like it could’ve been from Balthazar). Chris’ bruschetta was okay (he enjoyed it) but I don’t think there was enough olive oil to bring everything together. I didn’t take pictures of the food (sorry!) but I’d definitely go back for a sandwich some time, so don’t worry, there will be pictures eventually!

After bruschetteria, we headed to teany for a Raspberry Lime Ricky, made with fresh raspberry puree and lime juice, blended, then lightly carbonated and sweetened. It was pretty tasty, although I would’ve preferred it without the sweetener (it was already pretty sweet on its own). They also specialize in vegan dishes (and desserts) and might be a cute place to check out sometime. I hear that moby doesn’t own the space anymore since he broke up with his co-owner, Kelly, so they sold it off, but who knows, I could’ve just made that up. Check back tomorrow for more updates!
