One of my "tweeps" is a chef/owner of a wonderful "old school" Italian restaurant called Marzullo's, in Montclair, New Jersey. Raphael always posts photos of the wonderful dishes coming out of his kitchen. I really wanted to go there. I asked two friends to take a mini road trip with me yesterday, and we had the most wonderful lunch. Raphael treated us like royalty!
We had a bowl of pasta fagioli soup (pasta fazool), eggplant rollatini (he asked what dish I was "craving"), my friends had delicious panini's and I had the very tender sliced steak (we took home lots of doggie bags).
We enjoyed complimentary sangria, espresso, biscotti and warm -from -the -oven pignoli cookies.
|Best biscotti ever! some were filled and frosted|
For those of you who live within driving distance, you should definitely make a plan to visit this restaurant.
There is also a full deli and bakery on site.
