dell’anima is Chef Rick Gresh‘s other favorite from Manhattan.. so obviously, our first dinner living here was resto and the second had to be dell’anima…

….unfortunately their amazing uni pasta wasn’t on the menu that night but what we got was purely heavenly…. time to go back to Chicago to give Rick a HUUUUUGE hug and then eat his great food LOL….

The usual two bottles of wine, a red and a white :]

Both wines were both great and full of flavor and body… and went PERFECT with all of our foods. Props to our great waitress for giving us the recommendations :]
