This is true for relationships, college football coaching situations and even weekend catamaran routes.
It’s also true of pasta.
So we’ve found a spot that will serve you pasta and salads with things like tomato pearls and cantaloupe caviar—say hello to Caffe Da Vinci, reopening tomorrow after a six-month hiatus in the Bay Harbor Islands.
In short, this is the place to turn to after your next Bal Harbour Shops session, when you’re looking for a cozy spot to curl up with your leggy shopaholic and a mountain of lobster ravioli.
Walking in, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a cigar lounge crossed with a trattoria off the Amalfi Coast: polished marble floors, red velvet chairs and whitewashed brick walls.
You’ll want to start at the stately mahogany bar, sipping one of the new martinis like a Scarlet O’Hara made with Chambord and cranberry and topped with just enough liquid nitrogen to give it a smoky fog.
Then, you’ll hit the dining room and dig into classics like veal parmigiana, lasagna with Bolognese sauce and spaghetti with clams—and new curiosities like mushroom risotto topped with cantaloupe caviar.
So much better than honeydew caviar.
