Way back in January, before we managed to hit “PEAK STUPID” every day with the China Wuhan Virus , we had an “out of towner” that we had to entertain for a few days and the
good best part of that was we got to expense a pretty good dinner.
There were six off us and we ordered three appetizers:
Bruschetta, Calamari, Toasted Ravioli.
All very good !!
For my main course, it was a coin toss between the Linguine & Clams or the Zuppa.
I went with the Zuppa.
Zuppa di Pesce….$26
“Scallops, calamari, shrimp, octopus, mussels &
clams with linguine in a tomato herb sauce”
Man, that was really good !!!
When I ordered it, the waitress asked if I wanted it with “red sauce or white sauce” and as soon as she finished saying that she said, “Honey, nobody orders the white sauce.”
Hmmmm, I really thought about the white sauce, which would have been interesting if it were an Alfredo, but not sure if I would want it if it were a white wine sauce. So I got the red.
I had a dish very similar to the above before. Similar but not the same:
I remember the Zupp di Mare was really good but it was so long ago that I wouldn’t be able to say which dinner was better.
Using search engines on the intertubes, I can’t find any difference between Zuppa di Mare and Zuppa di Pesce. It might just be a personal or regional difference.
