Tourists, families, health freaks, party animals, foodies all need to be satisfied. The diversity of the population is reflected also in the numerous kinds of food establishments present in the area. From Italian to Japanese, from burgers to burrito, from empanada to shish kebab if you are looking for something it’s very likely you will find it. Despite all the different cuisines, when I’m looking for a place to eat, I created my own 2 categories: dry and fresh. A dry restaurant is a place that doesn’t have or has lost its juice, its essence along the way.
The passion that should fill the space between those four walls has disappeared or has never even existed. It’s a place where pre cooked meats are preferred to the joy of cooking and filling the room with its aroma. Ingredients are chosen based solely on their efficiency rather than the flavor.
It’s a place where more is better.
On the contrary, a fresh restaurant is where every dish is a reflection of somebody’s passion, whether it’s the owner’s or the chef’s. And this passion is then shared by the people passing through its entrance. It’s not just an abstract concept but a truly authentic will to serve its customers as if they were their family. No cutting corners, no compromises, just honest cooking with the incessant thought of the responsibility every restaurateur should feel. I’m doing something that will end up in somebody’s body.
Our “Mother Dough” was first created on the island of Sardinia in Italy 300 years ago. Unbleached and unbromated flour, extra virgin olive oil, salt, water and our Mother dough as a leavening agent. The dough is leavened for three days, which makes our pizza easy to digest, healthy and rich in minerals. Fresh produce, fresh meats, fresh cheeses, sauces prepared in house, extra virgin olive oil infused with spices. No frozen, no precooked, no dried. We don’t even have a freezer!
