with meatballs, left, at Casale's
Halfway Club, 2501 E. Fourth St. The red sauce was thick
and flavorful, the meatballs were melt-in-your-mouth tender and
the fork just slid through them like butter, but the ravioli
were small and disappointingly mushy. A side salad, center, was
dressed simply with just red wine vinegar; way too acidic to enjoy. What passed for
garlic bread, right, easily could have been a chopped-up
lunch at Bistro 7, 7111 S.
Virginia St. Crispy fried green beans with a stone ground
mustard dipping sauce, left, side Caesar salad, center, and
tomato brie soup, right.
