Bruschetteria

My friend and I had dinner at this cute little restaurant called, Bruschetteria on Rivington Street in the Lower East Side before we went to an outdoor movie last weekend. I ordered the bruschetta with goat cheese & olive tapenade and the smoked salmon & arugula salad that were quite delicious.

So do you have a favorite cheese? I love almost all kinds of cheese but my favorite has to be brie and goat cheese.

I love every cheese, but if I had to choose a favorite, it would be Stilton.

I like your photos and blog. It makes me homesick, but in a good way.

I found you via M. Benaut's Adelaide Daily Photo.

Ming..I am quite impressed with all these lovely places you seem to find. You eat very healthy. I enjoy so many different types of cheese..On salad Feta... splashed on a nice soup, I enjoy grated parmesan...Brie is very nice...Blue cheese amazing...So you see, I would have trouble choosing a favorite ...

Nice photo of course...

You do a great job of covering the city! This snap is particularly good..I like the way you've captured the lighting inside. I think I enjoy Mozzarella cheese (is the spelling right?) the most..

la tapenade c'est délicieux. je note l'adresse pour mon prochain voyage new-yorkais.
Mon fromage, c'est la mimolette extra vieille.

tapenade is delicious. I note the address for my next trip New York.
My cheese is Mimolette extra old.

This is a nice photograph of a quaint place to eat. I don't like goat milk or cheese.

Oh, I love all cheeses. I love a good sharp cheddar with apples and pears. I love brie, camembert, swiss, boucheron..unlike my whole family I have escaped the Asian curse of lactose intolerance.

Great little place! I hope to visit!

Hi Ming! I’m profiting from the holiday to anticipate the weekly visit… ;)
Gave me a good idea for dinner: bruschetta al Pomodoro and a funghi porcini (or shiitake) risotto... Cheese? Serpa, Serra or Azeitão; but probably you'll need to take the TP104 flight to come here and enjoy! ;))
Caterpillars? No, Thanks!
Café Charbon? OK, but not so eco these days... ;))
The West Side Vista is stunning; great shot. Outdoor movie? I was there once many, many years ago...
Thanks for your comment on Blogtrotter, which is still around Marrakesh. Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!

french cheese... Reblochon... mmmmm delicious!

Hello,

Thank you for your blog that makes me discover NY as a very cosmopolitan city... Very exited to go there this summer....

I agree with olivier, the old Mimolette is a cheese that is a speciality that you can find easily in north of France and in Belgium and Nederland...delicious!

Difficult for me to choose a cheese that I prefer because in France, each area has its own speciality: Normandy (the famous camembert), (la Tome de Savoie)Pyrenees,etc.

A bit of old parmesan with pepper on pastas is enoughe to make a good meal !

That Bruschetteria looks a nice place! Love almost all kinds of cheese, too!

I'm a friend to most cheese, though if it looks too moldy on the outside of the round I might draw the line. I would definitely give it a taste, though.

Say, that looks like a tin ceiling in this ristorante ... is it?

My choice would change according to region (or country), but "at home", it would be brie, goat and rocquefort!

I like goats cheese on bruschetta with red onion marmalade. Its my favourite thing on the menu at one of the Italian restaurants in Cheltenham. Yummy :)

Chris said...

Oh, I would LOVE this place. Is it new?

Cheese? I like ricotta, goat chese, feta, provolone and asiago the best. I do not like in any way, shape or form, blue cheese, roquefort, or any cheese that resembles them in any way.

Mmmm... your dinner sounded delicious.

I like how you caught the lights in the window. Wonder what's in the prix fixe dinner - cheese, I hope. Make mine gorgonzola.

Fresh salted "mootz" with a slice of tomato and a crisp basil leaf. Brie is a close second ;)

Per Stromsjo said...

I agree with Alex, Parmesan can make (almost) any dish fly away with you.

Belinda said...

Tasmanian Brie is delicious and I also love Provolone and can't pass up a vintage cheddar. Hmmmm.....I also love fetta and Bocconcini - I never realised how much I love cheese Ming!!

Would love to see some photos of the bruschetta you had for dinner....ummmm...I also love bruschetta :oP

tigerfish said...

I don't hv a fav but I find myself buying blue cheese, usually. Feel like a classic bruschetta now with just tomato and mozzarella.

I'm with you Ming....I love brie and goat cheese.

I was at a dinner party this weekend and the host served parmigiana and crusty garlic bread. It was yummy.
