One of the main things we do when we’re “down south” is EAT! And we like to try out new restaurants. Last night we went to a lovely little Italian restaurant in Scottsdale – Davanti Enoteca.
We started with a crunchy bruschette that was like a mini salad on toast – complete with teeny frilly lettuce leaves that tickled my nose…
Then we had mascarpone polenta with ragu… mmmmm delish!
To finish it off we had their focaccia di recco which is a flat foccacia pocket filled with soft cheese served with a glob of honey that is still in the honeycomb – very interesting and very tasty!
This little bench with the potted plants is what greeted us at the door and I knew I had my TT image! And now that I’m working in WordPress – I’ve had to re-learn the mouseover technique. Aaaackk, my brain hurts. Hope it works!
WOOT!! IT WORKS!! THE MOUSEOVER WORKS!!
Oh, and I edited the photo in Lightroom – used several presets and then applied Kim’s “calamity” on overlay.
Thanks for stopping by!
