Risotteria may have been one of the best things to happen to the West Village. Or at least one of the best things for us Italian-food-loving, gluten-free folk.
Last night I had the sincere pleasure of dining with NYCfoodguy‘s Lawrence Weibman at Risotteria, where the “man food”-loving gentleman (reluctantly) admitted how good gluten-free can be.
After a meal of GF Caesar Salad, meat balls, truffle oil portobello mushroom pizza, and truffle oil mozzarella mushroom risotto, we were stuffed, but (obviously) had room for dessert.
Enter: Gluten-Free Tiramisu.
Which leads me to my inspiration: GLUTEN-FREE LADY FINGERS.
I love how many things are gluten-free, now. Including that Italian staple of the thin, delicious, moist-yet-crispy delight that is appropriately called the “lady finger”.
