Attention! Lunch bunch

If it is Friday or Saturday night, the patio at Giuseppe’s is likely to be packed.

But Giuseppe’s isn’t just for dinner and cocktails any more.

It is now open for lunch. Harvey Anne Leimbrook and I stopped by today and each selected the same lunch special. It was light and quite tasty: baked vegetable tart and soup of the day, English pea in a chicken broth. (Coffee was good, too!) We also spotted John and Angelina Manno and Margaret Rice among the diners.

Other things that sound delish: sauteed shrimp, pimiento, green onions and mushrooms with a cognac cream sauce and grilled breast of chicken with sliced cantaloupe. The Canneloni di Vegetali, ricotta and vegetable-stuffed canneloni, would be interesting. I am one of those who loves calves liver, so will sometime try the lightly sauteed calf liver with onion, bacon and balsamic demi-glace sauce.

Not to be fixated on bathrooms, but the women’s is decorated in rich tones of brown with white, green, blue and red print, lop-eared rabbits running across the walls — on the wallpaper, of course.
