A few weeks ago I finally made it over to Pastificio San Lorenzo.
Last year an Italian friend had pointed out the building, telling me it used to be a pasta factory. Above the restaurant are artists lofts and there's also a gallery space.
My friend, Jessica, suggested we meet there for her birthday drinks. It was a fantastic idea.
San Lorenzo is a serious schlep from my side of town. While in the area I had to stop by SAID for some chocolate.
We had a great time sitting at the bar. The cocktails are excellent (Jessica and I had Moscow Mules). My wine expert friend appreciated the variety of Sicilian wines and the food was delicious. Our waiter was super friendly.
I really like the decor and the vibe. I will definitely return.
