The (Italian) Village

Special occasion today, and we went downtown to Chicago’s oldest Italian restaurant, The Village (since 1927).

Fortunately, they appear to have updated since 1927. It’s a cute place.

We sat in the small booth at the right

Seafood mannicotti, carpaccio, eggplant parmigiana, panna cotta. The red sauce tasted like real tomatoes! It did not come out of a RagĂș jar, that’s for sure; I don’t know where they even get tomatoes that taste like that. Should’ve asked.

CVH liked the carpaccio; I thought it looked like a visit to a slaughterhouse, but as long as she is happy, I am happy.
