Io amo Alloro

Alloro. a lovely Italian spot on the Upper East Side.

I went here with a few colleagues of mine to indulge in what would’ve bIMG_1811een a “$$$” meal had it not been for a good ‘ol Restaurant Week deal…

This deliciousness to your right is eggplant parmigiana – my absolute favorite Italian food! And it was perfect! Yum yum yum. Couldn’t have asked for a better way to start off the meal.

For my entree, I decided on the seafood gnocchi which was indeed equally delicious. A dish filled with mussels, clams and shrimp, it was an excellent choice for a person who loves all things seafood like myself. My parents had me eating mussels and fried calamari at thIMG_1813e tender age of 3! They joke that people in restaurants used to do double-takes when they saw little pipsqueak Jackie diving right in to eat these tentacled creatures. How could I resist?!

I had the cannoli for dessert and, being the sweets-addict that I am, failed to take a photo prior to polishing it off – whoops! I can assure you it looked as fancy as the first two dishes and was equally tasty.

Spread kindness and cheer, xo
Jackie
