Lugo. "La dolce vita", in Seoul! (a photoblog)
As the Lugo Caffe website states, "Since the 1950’s of Fellini’s Rome, the world over has been captured by the dream of ‘la dolce vita’. As the cornerstone of Lugo Tailored Lifestyle, Lugo Caffé brings that very dream to life."
Oh-- and was it ever so dolce~ yum.
Thanks to this man, executive chef, Mark Battle
and his right hand man, sous-chef Jeff.
Greeted with some bubbly prosecco and a delightful spread of pepper infused olive oil and white bean spread.
Next, an impressive line-up from the antipasto section:
Fresh mozzarella made to order with perreroncini-roasted peppers, salumi and
fresh mozzarella with prosciutto de parma, fig jam.
insalata cesare with ricotta ravioli croutons
Now for the secondi -
Costolette di mailale (Pork chops with an apple mustard seed sauce)
Spigola in cartoccio (Sea bass with carmalized onions, roasted wild mushrooms and lemon)
Fettuccine ai frutti di mare (homemade fettuccine, clams, shrimp, mussels, crab, diavolo sauce)
Roma-style gnocchi with wild mushrooms.
And of course, for dessert, I'll let your eyes do the telling. Buon Appetito!
