I'm not a foodie, nor am I particularly a fan of Italian food, but twice now I've paid a visit to Trattoria Alba (not, alas, in my neighborhood) and have had one of the cheaper dishes, the capellini primavera, around fifteen bucks. It so good -- so unusually good -- that I've been daydreaming about it for the past 24 hours, something I'm not normally given to doing about food. The restaurant itself, incidentally, is very pleasant -- quiet, serene, spacious, with more tables than it probably needs (at least on weekday nights, when I've eaten there), ditto plenty of attentive waiters. I strongly recommend the place and hope it prospers.
